Teachers, parents, homeschoolers, and anyone else who wants to read to children or help children read: we are happy to put together themed collections of books you can take home or use in the classroom! Your wish list of books can be as general as “I need books on snowflakes” or you can request specific titles by using our online catalog at https://bellwood-antis.sparkpa.org/. Give us 2-4 weeks in advance, and we can also order your books from libraries in Blair, Bedford, Cambria, Huntingdon, and Lackawanna Counties. To get started, talk to a librarian, or e-mail your requests to bellwoodantispubliclibrary@gmail.com.

All jewelry is for sale for a freewill donation. Shop anytime the library is open: 1-8 PM Monday-Thursday and Saturdays from 9 AM-2 PM. Donations of used and new costume jewelry for this ongoing fundraiser are appreciated, and can be dropped off anytime the library is open.

 

We encourage you to check out our backpack kits for families: packed with books and other goodies such as cameras, binoculars, scavenger hunt cards, and more, these kits will help your family get outside, explore, and learn at local parks and nature trails. There are five backpack kits available with the following themes: train watching, Pennsylvania wildlife, bugs & butterflies, rocks & minerals, and exploring nature. Backpack kits are available at the checkout desk. Check one out today!

These kits were made possible with generous support from the Central Pennsylvania Community Foundation. For more information about this Community Foundation, visit centralpagives.org.
