Check out our Roku for streaming movies!

   Friday, October 2nd, 2015 - by: Brian Herzog, Head of Reference

roku playerThe Library recently added a Roku 1 player, to give patrons another option for watching movies from the our collection.

In case you're unfamiliar with it, a Roku is a small device that connects to a television and is used to wirelessly stream content from online services. Digital versions come with some of the DVDs we purchase, and these are the titles you can access through the Roku. The list of available titles is available on the Roku's catalog record.

The device circulates for one week and can't be renewal. You can place a hold on it from the catalog, to pick up either at the Main Library or the MacKay Branch. It comes packaged in a case that contains all the cables and connectors you should need to hook it up to your television or digital projector, along with a remote control.

Please see the Reference Desk or Circulation Staff if you have any questions, or stop by the Circulation Desk to check it out.

These can be accessed by visiting http://chelmsfordtv.org/streaming.php in your web browser. On the right, videos are grouped into categories:

  • Selectmen Meetings
  • School Committee Meetings

  • Government-Miscellaneous
  • Chelmsford Public Schools
  • Public Access Programming
  • Chelmsford Public Library

Cameraman MattTo view a video, click one of the categories and then scroll down the list of available videos and click on the one you'd like to see. There is also a search box at the top of the viewer to find videos by keyword.

In addition to recording various the governmental functions of the Town of Chelmsford, most of the programs held at the Library will be available here online (these are naturally our favorites). So if you missed a program at the library, a Selectmen meeting, one of the many Public Access shows, or just about anything else that happened in Chelmsford, you can watch (or rewatch!) it at your leisure here - for free, any time day or night. DVDs of each program at also available for $10 - contact Chelmsford Telemedia for details.
