MENTONE — The Bell Memorial Public Library will host the following programs in July:
The library is having a book sale in the main lobby. Single titles are 25 cents each or five books for $1.
Join us for Story Hour at 10 a.m. every Friday. Children listen to a story, sing songs and make a craft.
Join the library from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, July 19 to make a fabric watermelon wreath. Cost of this class is $5 and is limited to 20 participants. The library kindly asks that you sign up to ensure there are enough materials for everyone.
As a part of the continued development of the library’s new reading garden, the library board is offering patrons an opportunity to purchase an inscribed paver brick to serve as a memorial for an individual, family, or business. Many bricks have been purchased so far, and yours would certainly add to the area. These bricks may be inscribed with up to four lines. Each line will contain up to 12 spaces, including blanks.
A paver brick may be purchased for $100 each, and these bricks will be incorporated in the walkway throughout the outdoor area. These paver bricks will certainly serve as a wonderful and lasting memorial. Please contact Library Director Stephen Boggs if you are interested in purchasing a memorial paver brick. He can be contacted at (574) 353-7234 or [email protected] Forms for the pavers are available on the library’s website at www.bellmpl.info.
