Or come on into the library and ‘check out’ these books:
Shannon Donovan, Library Director, proudly displays the new laser printer received from “The Blossom Fund”, a grant administered by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation. This new printer will be used not only by library staff and volunteers, but also by our patrons needing to print out items.
The Bemus Point Library continues to be the only location in the village where patrons can use computers free of charge; printing, copying, and faxing are also available for a nominal fee. Additionally, patrons can log on to our Wi-Fi network. Please see library staff or volunteers for more information about technology usage at the library.
In observance of Memorial Day, the library is closed today. Please join our staff, volunteers and fellow citizens as we honor those who have died in service to the United States of America.

We will resume our normal schedule tomorrow.

Recent studies have shown that printed book sales have started to increase and digital book sales have been in decline. That may be a surprising statistic for the “digital age”, but perhaps it is the amount of time that people spend on digital devices that has played a factor in this change. If you want fresh printed titles, come on down to the library and see the numerous books we have for check out & for sale! For more information on this trend, read the article here.
Do you like mystery novels? The library has just received a collection of eight John Sandford books! If this author or genre interest you, come on down and pick them up!
Anytime you would like to pass along your personal books or DVDs, please consider donating them to the library. If we already carry the title, we add them to our “book sale” area.
The funds received enable our programs to flourish!
Maybe it’s time for you to come browse what we have before the big sale in July!
This spring, Bemus Point Library will be hosting several events!
Children can join us as we celebrate Earth Day; adults will be pleased with our Arbor Day celebration; and for all of our environmental conscious patrons, we will be hosting a “Learn to Make a Braided Rug” by repurposing wool garments.
Please check out our calendar page for specific details!
In this digital age of getting information we want with a tap of a finger or click of a button, why would you want to sit down and flip through a magazine? According to Andy Sernovitz, “Everyone needs fresh ideas. When you surf the web, you usually seek out the same stuff every time. Or you see the stuff your friends share.” If you are looking for some specific topics, or haven’t picked up your favorite magazine in a while – chances are, it’s here at the library! We have a wide selection of magazines that just may be what you are looking for! (A small 25 cent donations accepted per magazine.)
