Support the Library by Sending Flowers

Sending flowers for Easter, Mother's Day, a birthday or for any occasion is a sure way to brighten someones day. Now you can send flowers and add to the support the Library receives from the Bedford Library Friends.

Bice's Florist created the Helping Hands program as a way to continuously give something back to the community throughout the year. So when you purchase flowers from any of our area Bice's florists just mention that you would like their Helping Hands contribution of $2.00 to go to the Bedford Library Friends. The Friends group uses all donations to enhance library services to the community.

Construction at New Library

If you haven't been by the site of the new library lately take a look at these photos of construction taken during the end of February. The former grocery store is starting to transform into a beautiful library. Window openings are being added along the north and south facades to take advantage of natural light. In parts of the library, the natural light will filter through colored glass creating a vibrant color palette in the Lobby, Children's Area and Teen Area.

Celebrate Seuss Festival Photos

Even though it was a cold and wet afternoon over 500 people had fun at our annual Celebrate Seuss Festival. See the photos.
