MENTONE — Bell Memorial Public Library is currently working on having old microfilm, pictures, documents and other Mentone history digitized.
This is a work in progress and it will take some time, but the goal is to make them available in the library’s catalog so that you can peruse at your own convenience on a computer, tablet, or other device.
The library has many popular television series, both new and old, on DVD that are available for check-out. You must have a library card to check out items. These are some of what the library currently has available: “Mountain Men, “Murdock Mysteries,” “Nash Bridges, “Once Upon A Time” and “Outlanders.” Several of the library’s television series such as “Modern Family” haven’t circulated in quite some time.
