New MacKay Branch Phone Number

   Friday, April 24th, 2009 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

new phoneThe Library had a new phone system installed last month, and the transition has been a smooth one. The new system gave us additional features that help us serve patrons better, and we're still exploring the system to see what else it can do.

One of the features is that now both the Main Library and the MacKay Branch are connected on the same phone system. Calls can be transferred between the two branches more easily, and we also now share the same voice mail and paging system.

It also means there is no longer a need to have a separate phone number for the MacKay Branch. Starting May 1st, 2009, MacKay's old phone numbers will no longer work. Instead, patrons should call the regular library number, 978-256-5521, and then press 6 to reach the MacKay Branch.

Introducing Tricia Horan, Youth Services Librarian

   Thursday, August 28th, 2008 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Tricia HoranThe Chelmsford Library has a new Librarian for Youth Services, Patricia Horan. Tricia provided a brief biography as a way to introduce herself:

As an undergraduate I studied English and Art History at Rutgers University where I earned my B.A. in 2004. In August of 2005 I completed my M.L.S. at Simmons College with concentrated coursework in programming and collection development for children and young adults. For the past three years I was the Head of Youth Services at the Oliver Wolcott Library in Litchfield, Connecticut. The OWL is a community library in a rural town of approximately 9,000 people. Due to its small staff size I was solely responsible for everything related to youth services and wore several other hats—doing additional work with adults, outreach and technology.

I am thrilled to begin my career as a Youth Services Specialist at the Chelmsford Public Library. After working in a small town, I am excited to work in a large library that serves an expansive and diverse community. The best part of my new position is that I get to spend my mornings working with little ones in the Children’s Room and in the afternoons I’ll be available to work with teens. Working with teens in a library environment was the reason I went to library school and being able to do that on a daily basis is a dream come true.

The Library is very happy to have Tricia as part of the team. Stop by the Children's Room or Young Adult area to introduce yourself, and give Tricia suggestions for books or programs you're interested in.
