In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Bellaire Public Library, we would like to share with you the history of how it came to be.
The library will be CLOSED for the holidays from December 23rd through January 1st. We will reopen on Saturday, January 2nd, at 9 AM. No fines will be assessed during this time and all due dates will be extended, so no renewals will be necessary. Have a Merry Christmas and we will see you in the new year!
Join us as Daniel Frizzi, Jr. discusses his new book, "Just A Grocer's Son," a story of immigrants, of family, and of small neighborhoods throughout the twentieth century.
Join us live via Zoom for this special event! Stop in the library or call us at (740) 676-9421 to register. Email invites to the event will be sent out the day before.
Wishing you and yours a safe and happy Thanksgiving
