Chelmsford was incorporated in pre-independence Massachusetts in 1655. It was named after Chelmsford in Essex in England. Lumber mills, limestone quarries and kilns were the first signs of industry in the area. During the Industrial Revolution, Chelmsford became a large scale factory town. The town grew further in the mid 20th century when it became a junction for road and rail links. Canada Dry was first made by the Chelmsford Ginger Ale Company. Hours/availability may have changed.

The original portion of the library was established with donations from Amos Adams who wished that all children should have access to books. Today there are two branches and range of services offered by the library. Besides books, there is 'the library of things', e.g. knitting kits, wheelchairs and metal detectors, that can be borrowed. Audiobooks and e-books can be downloaded. There is a vast genealogy section with links to local family history sites and cemetery and obituary records. Outreach programs target young children, teens adult and seniors. Technology training and support are offered. In summer, the library is closed on Sundays.
