Summer Reading is almost here! We are so excited for you to dive in to all our ocean-themed activities this summer with our theme of Oceans of Possibilites!
Join us in celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month by checking out one of these great reads. Try a moving memoir, a fascinating history, or a stirring novel. These books are not a comprehensive representation of the Asian American experience, but instead a sample of the diverse stories being told by AAPI authors.
Today is May the Fourth (AKA Star Wars Day)! To celebrate we've compiled lists fo the Star Wars books and movies here at the Bedford Public Library. Browse the carousels below of click the links to view items in our online catalog.
May the Fourth be with you!
Get out your calendar and start marking, because we have a plethora of great events coming up this May at the Bedford Public Library.

Spring is back and so is the Storywalk at Bedford Village Common!
Enjoy the nice weather by taking a walk on the Common and reading When Spring Comes by Kevin Henkes.
As you stroll through the common, you’ll see pages of the story installed next to the path. Page 1 is right after the arch where you enter the common and the story will take you over the bridge, around the gazebo, and back over the bridge to end back near the arch. All pages are numbered and within sight so you’ll know where to head next.
This month's make and take craft is a straw rocket! Kits will be available in the Children's Room or via Lower Level curbside until supplies last. Here's Miss Carla to show you how to make it:
Winter Break week is packed with programs for kids from age 0-12 in the Children’s Room!
