Now, once again we're asking for your help in choosing the next One Book Chelmsford, for 2011. Think about all the books you've read, or the books you'd like to read, and let us know which titles you'd like selected for the Town to read in 2011.
The next time you're in the library, give your nomination suggestion to any staff member. Or, you can submit your nomination online by clicking the "Submit Your Nomination" link on our homepage or using the One Book Nomination Form.
The One Book Committee will review all the suggestions and narrow them down to three final choices. Then on Election Day in November, the entire Town will vote for which of those three they'd like to be One Book Chelmsford 2011.Posted in Books, One Book | No Comments »
The movie opened Friday, Feb 19th, and has been getting good reviews. If you haven't seen it yet, how about seeing it with the Library? Details are still being worked out, but we're hoping to have a "Chelmsford night" at a local cinema, so many of us who read the book can all watch the movie together.
More information about the movie:
In other movie news, the February and March Library Cinema Nights will be showing Dennis Lehane movies. February's showing was Mystic River, and the March 18th Cinema Night will be another of his books. Check the Cinema Night webpage or the Library's Calendar for more details.Posted in One Book | No Comments »
