MENTONE — Bell Memorial Public Library is currently working on having its old microfilm, pictures, documents and other Mentone history digitized. This is a work in progress, and will take some time. But the goal is to make them available in a catalog so that patrons can peruse at their own convenience on personal computers, phones or other devices.
