Book Donations


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!

Check out our Spring Activities!

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!


Magazines, Magazines, Magazines!


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.)

These Brownstone Books!!

As previously publicized, we received 100 books from the Brownstone Foundation.  We are thrilled that over 2/3 of the books are new titles for us, but we are equally pleased that we are able to provide fresh copies for some of our well-loved books that we had in inventory.  Included in this lovely donation are beloved books by Ezra Jack Keats, a Caldecott medal recipient.



Brownstone Foundation books have arrived!

We are pleased to announce the arrival of books received through the Brownstone Foundation. The Brownstone Book Fund is a private foundation in New York City interested in fostering early reading, a love of books, and encouraging parents and children to read together. One hundred books were received, and we are sure you will enjoy the wide variety of titles for children. There are even a couple about libraries!

New Website!

As you can see, we have launched our new website for the Bemus Point Library!  We are excited to provide many new search features and links to the Chautauqua-Cattaraugus Library System.

Enjoy the new features…and enjoy the updates that we will be posting soon!
