Bellmore Family Street Festival

Fun with Our Patrons @ the Bellmore Festival!
On Saturday, September 19th over 250 patrons visited our booth at the 29th Annual Bellmore Family Street Festival to support the library and show us their North Bellmore Library card.  We were extremely excited when one patron showed us her original library card from when she was a child, circa 1970’s, complete with data punches!  
Our staff answered numerous questions and shared information about the many library programs and services available to North Bellmore Library cardholders.  Before leaving, adult and YA patrons received a choice of a multi-purpose e-pouch or earbuds with a case to go home with.  Our younger patrons got a chance to spin the prize wheel for an assortment of cool toys.  In addition, North Bellmore patrons were also given a raffle entry for a chance to win a basket of goodies.    
Congratulations to the North Bellmore Library’s Bellmore Festival Raffle Winners!

Thank you to all our patrons who stopped by to say hello and all those who support the North Bellmore Public Library. Public libraries are integral in promoting literacy and providing invaluable resources and services to all in the community.  We enjoyed spending time with you and hope you enjoyed the day. Thanks to our employees Michele Rudzewick, Corinne Thurau, Richard Shields, Alex Perlin, Nancy DeLuca and volunteer Mia DeLuca for manning our table at the Bellmore Family Street Festival.

The Library Board of Trustees will be renovating and expanding the present Library building.  The Library has run out of space needed to continue providing the North Bellmore community with the high-level of service they expect.  With more space, the Library will be able to provide more services and programs in a more inviting atmosphere.

The library's Board of Trustees is proud to announce that they have selected Elite Construction of NY as the Construction Manager for the Library's expansion and renovation project.  The construction Manager will be onsite everyday supervising all work being done.

You've just heard that Faye Kellerman has a new book out, but you don't have the time to get to the library to put a hold on the book. Now you won't have to worry--we'll do it for you! If you are a North Bellmore Library cardholder, join the Bestsellers Club and you will automatically be placed on the hold list for any 5 of the popular authors you choose. While we can't guarantee how near the top of the list you will be, it's one less thing you'll have to do. Tell us those authors whose new books you want to read. We'll add your name to the waiting list and contact you when the book is ready to check out. Pick up is at the North Bellmore Library only.
