Public Library


The Public Library of the City of Chelsea is to be a community library whose circulating collections and public information services reflect the needs of a constituency and to make the availability of its collections and services attractive to all. It is a recognized responsibility and priority of the library to make its services available to prospective users of all ages and backgrounds. The library is the city’s principal organization for serving the adult as an individual by providing resources for continuing education, general and technical information, and cultural development. The library also serves these purposes for those of student age by acting as a supplement to the city’s public and private schools. The prevalence of preschool use of the library and the present recognition of its vital importance are also important factors in the planning of services and collection development.
