Go to a Spinners Game with Discount Library Passes

   Friday, June 22nd, 2012 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Lowell SpinnersThe Lowell Spinners is offering a discount pass program for tickets for their 2012 season!

The pass works like this:

  • Find a game day on the Spinners' schedule you'd like to attend
  • Go to our Museum Pass page and reserve the pass for the same day as your game
    Each pass is good for up to six tickets, and each ticket will cost $3 (this is at least a 50% discount!)
  • On the day of the game, or the day before, pick up the pass at the library's main circulation desk
  • Take the pass to the game to purchase your tickets
    NOTE: the pass does not guarantee admission - the discount will only apply if there are tickets available the Spinners let us know that there will always be tickets available!

Be sure to check the Spinners' schedule - and remember, this pass only works if there still tickets available the day of the game.

We'd like to thank the Lowell Spinners for providing this discount pass program to local libraries!

Water Mains Being Flushed This Week

   Tuesday, October 11th, 2011 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Chelmsford Water DistrictThe Chelmsford Water District will be flushing water mains in the Town Center beginning October 11th, between 11:00 PM and 3:00 AM. Flushing will continue on the nights of the 12th, 13th, and 18th.

The flushing will cause discoloration in the water, but the Water District will attempt to use water hydrants to alleviate discolored water before morning.

The Water District asks that residents check their water each morning to make sure it is running clear before they use it. Also, check your backflow device to be sure it is not leaking after the flushing.

Flushing beyond the Center is scheduled for October 19th, 20th, 25th, 26th, and 27th, between 9:00 AM and 2:00 PM.

For more information, please visit http://www.chelmsfordwater.com or call the District Office at 978-256-2931.
