MENTONE — The Bell Memorial Public Library will host the following events in December:
Join the library for Story Hour at 10 a.m. every Friday. Children listen to a stroy, sing songs and make a craft.
Do you need help wrapping Christmas gifts? Join the library from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20, for a Teen and Young Adult Gift Wrapping Party. The library will supply everything you need. Just bring any gifts you would like to wrap. This party is open to teens ages 13 and older. Please sign up at the main circulation desk.
Have you heard of Hoopla? Hoopla is a digital media service that allows you to borrow movies, music, audiobooks, eBooks, comics and television shows to enjoy on a computer, tablet, or phone. With no waiting, titles can be streamed immediately or downloaded to phones or tablets for offline enjoyment later. Titles cannot be downloaded to computers. Come see any staff member at Bell Memorial Public Library for information on how to get started.
Do you love fitness? If so, join the library every Wednesday evening for Zumba and yoga. Zumba begins at 5:30 p.m. and yoga begins at 6:45 p.m. For more information, please contact Eva Mudd at (574) 253-5593 or [email protected] Ask to join the Facebook group “Eva’s Zumba and Yoga Community Classes.”
Do you not have Internet access at home? Let the library help with that. The Bell Memorial Library is circulating an Internet hotspot.
