The Library is introducing a new monthly series, Community Spotlight, to feature various community organizations and non-profits that are looking for talented volunteers, new members and/or community support.

This is a good opportunity to meet some of the people who run the wonderful organizations that help to make Chelmsford and the Merrimack Valley such a special place to live. Learn about possible volunteer opportunities and ways to show your support to help these groups continue the important work they do.

Format of the program:
The format will vary depending on the participating organizations. Each group will have about 15 minutes to talk or to present a Power Point or film about their organization. If time permits there will be Q&As after each presentation. At the end of the program we will allow time for audience members to mingle and meet individually with reps from the groups.

Participating organizations are not allowed to solicit donations or sell any goods or services. The program is intended to be for informational or educational purposes. If you know of an organization that should be featured in Community Spotlight please email Kathy at
