Mission: The purpose of the Bedford Public Library Foundation is to help build the future of our community by supporting the library.
Programs: The annual Youth Summer Reading program is open to all Bedford Public Library patrons, ages 0-18. Its purpose is to promote the use of the pubic library and encourage reading throughout the summer. Special programs are based on a common summer theme and are designed to highlight the FUN involved with reading and library usage. Reading is promoted through a rewards-based system. Past programs included age-specific story times, puppet shows, magic shows, concerts, book discussions, movies, video game tournaments and much more.
