Library Window Project

The Belleville Public Library has recently completed replacement of all the original 1956 windows in the building.  New energy-efficient windows were installed on the south and east sides of the library this spring, completing a project begun more than two years ago.  Thank you to the following donors who made the second phase of the project possible:

Teen Volunteers

We are accepting Teen Volunteer applications now...the priority deadline is May 3.  Teen Volunteers are 7th-12th graders who spend a few hours a week planning teen events, helping with the summer library program, preschool storytimes, and other library activities.

Each volunteer will receive a t-shirt and will be invited a special end-of-summer party.  It's a great way to get some community service hours, gain employment skills, and hang out with old and new friends.

If you have questions, contact Megan at 527-5305 or
