The Bellaire Public Library and The Great Stone Viaduct Historical Education Society will partner again this winter season to sponsor a Local History Winter Lecture Series. This joint effort began last year as a part of the educational outreach of the GSV Society to meet its mission of helping to promote public awareness of the rich local history of the Ohio Valley. The Bellaire Public Library, with cooperation from Laura Cramblet, Library Director, has worked to collaborate with the GSV Society using the Community Room as the setting for the lectures and displays which accompany the speakers.
The Winter Lecture Series, held on Wednesday evenings during the winter months of February and March, is now in its second year. A decision was made by the GSV Society and the Bellaire Public Library to expand the lecture season this year from six weeks to eight weeks based upon a favorable response from those attending last year. This expansion will broaden the topics that can be covered and allows a greater opportunity for those wishing to attend one or more lectures. The lectures sponsored last year saw attendance between 30 to 50 persons for each lecture, and those numbers will be targeted for increase this year.
Time is coming upon us again, friends as we gear up for the Annual Community Christmas Caroling. Come join us on December 18th at 12:30 p.m. at the library. Weather permitting, we'll go throughout our community, bringing good cheer to all. Come join us! All are welcome.
The after-school music program for Tweens and Teens with Mrs. Hawkins will resume in January. Stay tuned for updates!
We are looking for a worthy name to call our program, something cool that will catch the attention of your peers. Please help us by giving us your ideas. There will be a prize for the student that can give us the winning name for our program.

December 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th - Christmas Break
