September is just a few weeks away, and that means the return of our book groups! The Chelmsford Library hosts eight book groups, most of which meet from September through June every year. Whether you like fiction, nonfiction, classics, cookbooks, or mysteries; whether you prefer to meet at night, midday or morning, we have a book group for you.
