Our last Storywalk of the year is Bella’s Fall Coat written by Lynn Plourde and illustrated by Susan Gal. The Storywalk will be up at Bedford Village Common for the month of November and will come down on November 30.

The Storywalk will be in hibernation for the winter, but look for its return in the spring.

Fall Programming Guidelines in the Children’s Room

Fri, 08/20/2021 - 2:14pm -- Emily S


This fall we strongly encourage face masks in the library for everyone over 2 years old, regardless of vaccination status. The Library Board of Trustees agreed at their August 20th meeting that face coverings should be strongly encouraged when the spread of Covid-19 is at substantial transmission levels in Hillsborough County as identified by the CDC.

Thank You Summer Reading Sponsors!

There’s no doubt about it – the Summer Reading Program wouldn’t happen without the support of our community here in Bedford. This year we had several sponsors and donors who helped to make our program a great success.

Jo-Anne Johnson Family Dentistry generously supported our Popsicle Thursdays as well as our Ice Cream Truck Finale Party.
