Upcoming library workshop: Your library from home, Wed. April 1

   Monday, March 30th, 2015 - by: Jessica Fitzpatrick

libraryanytimeheadersmallFinally, your favorite author has published a new book, and you can’t wait to read it. It’s 9:30 PM though - how are you going to place a request? Or maybe you’re a student working on a paper late at night, and you just need a few more sources. Or perhaps you’re just interested in finding out more about an author, or researching local services for a project, but if the library is closed, where will you go for the information?

The truth is, many of the services you receive in person or over the phone from a librarian are available to you from home using a computer that’s connected to the internet. You can perform catalog searches, place requests, create book lists, or check due dates.

In addition to the electronic library catalog, many robust and powerful databases are at your disposal 24/7. With just a library card and PIN, you have access to peer-reviewed journals, electronic car manuals, consumer information, full-text business and computer book collections, detailed health information and much more.

Come see how your library never closes by attending one of two upcoming tech talk sessions:

All sessions are held in the main library’s first floor conference room. Space is limited so please register online here or at the reference desk.

Drug Addiction and the Developing Brain Program: May 9, 2012

   Sunday, May 6th, 2012 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Sponsored by the Chelmsford Coalition to Live Smart and Healthy Chelmsford

What parents and children in Grades 5+ should know!

Wednesday, May 9, 2012
CHS Performing Arts Center
7 pm – 9 pm

Join the Healthy Chelmsford Coalition, Chelmsford Coalition to Live Smart, Chelmsford Police Dept., Chelmsford School Dept., and Trinity EMS, Inc., in an "eye opening" drug awareness presentation.

The consequences of drug abuse and addiction cause people of all ages to suffer. Drug addiction is a chronic relapsing brain disease. The leading cause of death for young adults in this area is Opiate abuse!

This dynamic presentation will cover the topics of addiction and how addiction causes physical changes in the developing brain, discuss experimenting versus gateway drugs, and introduce the topic of pain and treatment as it relates to addiction. We will also discuss resources and proper medication disposal.

A personal story of addiction and the path he has traveled will be presented by a young 27 year old Chelmsford High alumni student.

If you would like any further information please call Sue Rosa, RN, Manager of Healthcare Services at the Board of Health 978- 250-5243, or you can print the program flyer [pdf].
