Update on MacKay Branch Renovation

   Thursday, November 29th, 2007 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Photo of MacKay's new carpetingThe renovation project to the MacKay Branch is proceeding right on schedule.

This week, workers finished painting the walls, staining the woodwork and installing new carpeting, and library staff has begun bringing furniture back in. The new book shelves are scheduled to be delivered and installed next week, and once those are in, staff will begin putting all the materials back on the shelves. Also over the next two weeks, staff will be reestablishing the computer networks and terminals, the photocopier, office furniture, and library signage and artwork.

We've been taking pictures of the progress, and those are available online at the Library's flickr.com account. Also available for viewing are historical pictures of the MacKay building, which were found while staff moved materials out before the renovation began.

Historical Photographs Online

   Friday, May 4th, 2007 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Photo from the Royal Shawcross setStarting in February 2007, the Chelmsford Library has benefited from the work of the Chelmsford Historical Society and Chelmsford Telemedia in digitizing historical photographs held in the library's archive.

These photographs are part of the Royal Shawcross photograph collection. This collection includes over 150 photographs taken in the North Chelmsford, Massachusetts area around 1901. The subjects include residences and businesses of the area, including the fire ruins of a major mill.

As they are prepared, these photographs are being uploaded to the Royal Shawcross Photographs set of the Library's Flickr account (read about Flickr), to make them available to the public.
