“I want to thank the residents of the Bellevue area for showing such great support for our small town’s endeavors to open a library to meet the needs of our area. When we set out to garner support through donations and volunteerism, we never imagined that our goal of having a library would gather so much interest and attention. It has been amazing to everyone involved in this project.
When the volunteers came to Shoney’s in Bellevue, we expected to see two or three boxes of books, some DVD’s and VHS movies, and would have been very appreciative of that. But when we arrived, we had to have two vehicles to move all of the boxes, and have been back twice to collect more books and movies. We have been very pleasantly surprised by the quantity and quality of the donations.
I think this is a great example of neighboring communities combining efforts and working to make dreams happen. I am so happy to be a part of it all. I speak for all of the citizens of our town as well as the Friends of the Library organization when I say thanks for all of your help.”
Mayor Linda Hayes
