Library Snow Policy Reminder

   Thursday, December 10th, 2009 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Library in SnowIt's that time of year again! Here's a reminder of how the Chelmsford Library handles unplanned closings due to snow and winter storm conditions - see our policy webpage for the complete Storm Closing policy.

  • Closings or delayed openings are coordinated with the town offices. In case of heavy overnight snowfall on a weekday, the decision will be made by 7:30 AM, and the announcement made via the outlets below
  • On Saturdays, the determination will be made by 8:15 AM, based on weather and parking lot conditions
  • If the weather worsens during operating hours causing the library to close, this announcement will be made through the designated outlets
  • The MacKay Branch will sometimes be closed while the main library remains open
