In case you're unfamiliar with it, a Roku is a small device that connects to a television and is used to wirelessly stream content from online services. Digital versions come with some of the DVDs we purchase, and these are the titles you can access through the Roku. The list of available titles is available on the Roku's catalog record.
The device circulates for one week and can't be renewal. You can place a hold on it from the catalog, to pick up either at the Main Library or the MacKay Branch. It comes packaged in a case that contains all the cables and connectors you should need to hook it up to your television or digital projector, along with a remote control.
Please see the Reference Desk or Circulation Staff if you have any questions, or stop by the Circulation Desk to check it out.Posted in Resources | No Comments »
Chelmsford Telemedia records many of the programs held at the Library, for rebroadcast on television. They also provide these programs on DVD to the Library, as well as put them online so they are available anytime.
The DVDs are in our catalog and available in the Library's DVD collection upstairs, and circulate just like regular DVDs.
The videos are in the Exhibits section - just choose what you'd like to watch from the dropdown box. Each video is displayed in the player - such as "The Science of Natural Disasters" with Dr. Chuck Fidler from May 11, 2012:
Thanks to the staff and volunteers of Chelmsford Telemedia for providing this great resource to the community. If you have any questions about Library programs, finding the DVDs, or watching them online, please contact the Reference Desk.
If you have ideas of programs or speakers you'd like to see at the Library, please contact Kathy Cryan-Hicks, Assistant Director of Community Relations & Programs, and firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521 x109.Posted in Library Information, Programs | No Comments »
We have two copies of the magazine - one upstairs with the regular magazines that you can check out to use at home (except for the most recent issue), and another complete set downstairs in Reference. The most current year is kept at the Reference Desk, and we also keep the last few years too.
In addition to the magazine, the library also has the Consumer Reports Buying Guide, and new and used car buying guides.
The online version of Consumer Reports is listed on the Reference databases section of our website - you'll need your Chelmsford Library card number to log in from home.
For similar resources, check out our Consumer Information webpage - it lists other subscription services provided by the library, as well as free websites.
Another great resource is the Boston Consumer Checkbook - instead of reviewing products (like Consumer Reports), it reviews local services, like plumbers, roofers, etc. Print magazines for the last few years are available by the Reference Desk, and online access is available too, but you must be in the library.
For help with these or any Library resources, please contact the Reference Desk.Posted in Library Information, Reference, Resources | No Comments »
To celebrate National Library Week, the library is launching "Your Library Anytime" - http://www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/anytime - to highlight all of the library services and resources that are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Whether you're trying to finish your homework the night before it's due, sitting on a beach and want to download an ebook, riding the train to work and feel like reading a magazine, or missed last week's speaker on your favorite topic - the library can help, even after our doors are closed.
Your Library Anytime is divided up into general sections, with links to specific resources - both library tools and free online resources - which are all available 24/7. And we'll be adding more links as we grow, so we'd love to hear your feedback - let us know what you'd like the library to offer! Send your comments to Becky Herrmann, Library Director, email@example.com - or better yet, go to http://www.chelmsfordlibrary.org/anytime and choose one of the other ways to connect with us, 24/7.Posted in Library Information, Resources, Web Tools | No Comments »
