The last scheduled donation drop-off day for the book sale is Saturday, August 30th, from 9am-Noon. Volunteers will be at the Yellow House (next door to the library) and available to help unload cars.
The absolute last day for donations is Friday, September 12th.
This is because the Yellow House has been sold and will be moved, and we'll have nowhere to store donations for awhile. So please, if you can't get the donations to the library by September 12th, hold onto them at home until we're able to accept donations again.
2014 Book Sale schedule:
The sale will take place in the gym behind the Town Office building, 50 Billerica Road, Chelmsford [see a map].
Run by the Chelmsford Friends of the Library, the book sale is a significant source of funding for library programming, museum passes, and many extras for Chelmsford patrons – the 2013 Book Sale raised over $25,000!

Chelmsford patrons have access to a new museum pass through the Library: Einstein's Workshop, in Burlington.
Einstein's Workshop offers many science and technology classes, and has a great drop-in space. The Library's pass offers free admission during drop in hours and admits up to 2 children.
Drop-in hours vary, so check our museum pass website for more information, and to reserve a pass. You can also visit Einstein's Workshop's website at http://www.einsteinsworkshop.com for more information on their activities.
In other museum pass-related news, the library is running a trial for the summer to make our passes more accessible. We're going to waive our regular pass limits for any day-of-use pass that isn't already reserved that day. So, if you already have something booked, and another museum you'd like to visit is also available on that day, you can now borrow both of them.
At the end of the summer we'll evaluate how the trial went and decide how to move forward. If you have any questions or suggestions about museum passes, please contact the Reference Desk at email@example.com or 978-256-5521 x211.Posted in Library Information, Resources | No Comments »
One of the advantages of the new Evergreen catalog is that it is built on open source software - that is, software that we have the ability to modify and develop, according to our needs.
When the new catalog launches on Tuesday, May 31st, that won't be the end of the story. There will be some new features included in the new catalog that we're excited about, but there are even more features scheduled for development this summer.
And the best part is that additional improvements are always in development - so if there is something you'd like the catalog to do, please let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the Reference Desk at 978-256-5521 x211.

All of the passes available through the Library are paid for by the Friends of the Chelmsford Library group. As such, they are available to all Chelmsford residents and any member of the Friends, regardless of residency. If you don't live in Chelmsford but would like to use our passes, you can join the Friends group to get access.

When requesting, you can choose to be receive a reminder email 24 or 48 hours before your reservation. Make sure you see the reservation confirmation screen before ending the process.
Reserved passes can be picked up in person at the Circulation Desk the day before or the day of the reservation, using the library card they were reserved under.
