Main Library
Fireplace Area
The 2020 One Book Chelmsford theme is “Stirring the Plots!” We’ll be focusing on food by reading two books: Relish, by Lucy Knisley and Kitchen Yarns, by Ann Hood. Thanks to the Friends of the Library for providing the funds to purchase almost 1000 copies to hand out!

Join a reading group. For stimulating conversation and lasting friendships you can't beat one. And fortunately, at the Chelmsford Public Library, we are still looking for new members in both our morning and evening reading groups. Take a break from the chaos in your life, seek some respite from the demands of technology and sharpen your mind. The library can be an oasis from the workaday world and a welcome outlet to the demands and stresses of home and family life. Talk, interact with other people, voice your opinion and this time, at least, we won't be saying shhhhh!
