The Library offers many different services to our community. We hope you will take advantage of some of our programs as well as the other services we offer!

Interlibrary Loan

If there is a book, Audiobook or DVD that you want to check out, but can't find in our collection, we will be happy to borrow it from another library for you. You can then check it out through our library for a period of 2 weeks, there are no renewals on these items.

Bi-Weekly Storytime

Our children's library is hopping with Storytime every other Wednesday @ 10:30 am September-May. The kids will enjoy stories, songs & crafts that encourage their love of reading and of the library. For more information on these programs visit our Kid's Korner page.

Community Outreach

For many years we have visited the local day cares in Bedford County with our Bookmobile to allow the children the experience of visiting the library while never leaving their day cares. In July of 2015 our bookmobile was destroyed by fire. Thankfully, through many donations we have been able to replace the Bookmobile and have resumed our day care route in January 2017.

We also have an outreach program in place for our Senior Centers and Post Offices in the County with which we make book drops on a quarterly basis.

Special Programs

The Library offers special programing for Children, Teens & Adults on a weekly or monthly schedule. If you would like to know more about our programs, please check out the other areas of our website.
