New Tech Training Course Series at the Library

   Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

Digital Literacy Class SeriesStarting in September, the library will be offering a new series of small group instruction classes.

The topic will always be technology, but each month will cover a different aspect - ebooks, using library resources, streaming movies and TV shows. The schedule for the rest of 2014 is:

  • Tech Talk: e-Books
    Wed Sept 10 at 10 a.m. AND Wed Sept 24 at 7 p.m.
  • Tech Talk: Your library from home: Catalog searching & popular databases
    Wed Oct 8 at 10 a.m. AND Wed Oct 22 at 7 p.m.
  • Tech Talk: Career resources
    Wed Nov 5 at 7 p.m. AND Wed Nov 12 at 10 a.m.
  • Tech Talk: Beyond ebooks: Zinio, Hoopla, Freegal and more
    Wed Dec 3 at 7 p.m. AND Wed Dec 10 at 10 a.m.

The sessions will be held on Wednesdays in the Library's Conference Room on the lower level. Each session will be repeated during the month, once in the morning and once in the evening, so patrons can come to whichever session is most convenient for them.

Registration is required and space is limited - sign up on our events calendar. Contact the Reference Department for more information or if you need help registering at askus@mvlc.org or 978-256-5521 x211.

New Groups at the Library

   Thursday, November 5th, 2009 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

conferencetableTwo new groups recently started regular meetings at the Chelmsford Library:

Chinese Conversation Circle
Similar to our other conversation circles (English, French, Spanish), the new Chinese Conversation Circle is to help people improve their ability to speak Chinese. The group is led by library volunteer Sherry Santangelo, and meets on the last Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Conference Room on the lower level of the main library. For more information, visit the Chinese Conversation Circle webpage.

Technical Skills Share Group
The Technical Skills Share group (a spin-off from the Acton Networkers group) are unemployed people keeping their technical skills sharp (and leaning new ones) by working collaboratively on a technology project. There are both hardware and software specialties needed for the project, so everyone is welcome to come and contribute whatever expertise you can. The group meets every Thursday from 1:30 - 6:00 p.m. in the McCarty Meeting room (side B). For more information, visit the Technical Skills Share Group webpage (for more employment resources, visit our Career and Employment Resources subject guide).

Both of these groups are open to everyone, as are the other groups, programs or exhibits that take place at the library. For more information, please contact Kathy Cryan-Hicks at kcryanhic@mvlc.org or 978-256-5521 x109, or view upcoming scheduled meetings on our Events Calendar.
