Bell Library's Reading Garden was made possible by money received from community members, establishing an Endowment Fund. This fund is being used for the purpose of leaving a lasting legacy to the community. The Library Board of Trustees decided to use the money for the establishment of an outside memorial garden to be used by the public during daylight hours for reading and reflection. The area has been landscaped and seating provided. This area will serve not only as a quiet area for community patrons but also as an enhancement to our town.
The Library Board has designated the columns that line the ouside of this new area for business donations to help defray costs. The Board would like to encourage local businesses to be a part of this project by donating to our Endowment Fund. Any column purchased by a business will have the name of the business displayed on the column.
As part of the development of this area, the Library Board is also offering patrons an opportunity to purchase an inscribed paver brick to serve as a memorial for an individual, family, or business. These bricks may be inscribed with up to four lines. Each line will contain up to 12 spaces (including blanks). These bricks will then be incorporated in to the walkway throughout the outdoor area. For more information please contact Roger Moriarty, Board President, at 574-353-7938.
