Fall Programming Guidelines in the Children’s Room

Fri, 08/20/2021 - 2:14pm -- Emily S


This fall we strongly encourage face masks in the library for everyone over 2 years old, regardless of vaccination status. The Library Board of Trustees agreed at their August 20th meeting that face coverings should be strongly encouraged when the spread of Covid-19 is at substantial transmission levels in Hillsborough County as identified by the CDC.

Thank You Summer Reading Sponsors!

There’s no doubt about it – the Summer Reading Program wouldn’t happen without the support of our community here in Bedford. This year we had several sponsors and donors who helped to make our program a great success.

Jo-Anne Johnson Family Dentistry generously supported our Popsicle Thursdays as well as our Ice Cream Truck Finale Party.

Enjoy our Spring Storywalk!

Fri, 04/23/2021 - 2:31pm -- Emily S

 

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 Bear Wants More by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman at the same time.

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.
