SHOP TO SUPPORT THE LIBRARY
Register at goodshop.com or goodsearch.com and select the Bedford Free Library as your charity of choice and each time that you make a purchase through their websites a contribution will be made to the Library. There is no charge to you. If you install their toolbar it will remind you each time you visit a member site.
GIVING IN KIND
Sometimes a patron likes to donate a book for a special occasion. Commemorate a birthday, new baby or anything that is significant to you with a book donation. A book plate will be placed in front of the book with the details of the donation. It is a wonderful way to remember someone or just let someone else enjoy a book you love.
Do you have a special talent or skill that you feel the library could use? Supporting the library does not only mean monetarily. Our community is filled with lots of creative and talented people that have added to the fabric and programming of the library. We’ve had story tellers, computer, financial and digital photography classes, a gingerbread house workshop, a quilting demonstration and of course author talks. Many of these special programs or events are done by patrons that love the library and wish to support us by sharing their expertise. If you have a skill and would like to contribute some time at the library we always love to hear ideas.
The Library is happy to provide community service opportunities to the youth of our community. These are, however, limited and many of them are seasonal such as working at book sales, collating the Annual Appeal, weeding and snow removal. It is suggested that if you wish to sign up for service that you call and discuss the opportunities that are available throughout the year. Those waiting for the last minute to complete their service will not necessarily be able to do so at the library.
