Your planned gift will make a difference in the Bellwood-Antis community for generations to come. We have numerous planned giving options, and are happy to discuss which works best for you. For more information, contact Hazel Bilka at or call 742-8234.

The library’s new Legacy Wall pays tribute to the community leaders who saw the great potential of a public library for people living in the Bellwood-Antis area, and gives new donors the opportunity to continue their vision into the future. Donations of $1000 or more will enable you to honor your business, a family member, or friend by having their name inscribed on the wall, and your tax deductible contribution will both ensure the future of the library and make a difference in the lives of thousands of people who rely on the library. For more information, contact the library at 814-742-8234 or e-mail
