MENTONE — Bell Memorial Public Library will be open again on Sundays starting today, Sunday, Sept. 8. Sunday hours are from 1 to 5 p.m.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month. In honor of Library Card Sign-Up Month, Bell Memorial Public Library is hosting a Library Scavenger Hunt. This will begin on Tuesday, Sep. 3 and continue until Monday, Sept. 30.
Each participant will be given a punch card. Visit each of the participating libraries and have a librarian punch your card. Then bring it back to Bell Memorial Library and pick which prize you would like to try and win.

Complications occur when Mark, the prospective father, begins viewing Juno as more than just the mother of his future child, putting both his marriage and the adoption in jeopardy.
