Have you heard of Hoopla?  It’s a digital media service that allows you to borrow movies, music, audiobooks, e-Books, comics and T.V. shows to enjoy on your computer, tablet, or phone.

With no waiting, titles can be streamed immediately or downloaded to phones or tablets for offline enjoyment later; titles cannot be downloaded to computers. Come see any staff member at Bell Memorial Public Library for information on how to get started.


Do you love fitness?  If so, please join us every Wednesday evening for Zumba and yoga.

No Internet access at home? Let the library help with that.

The library is circulating an internet hotspot. These devices are about the size of a large cell phone and connect the user to the Internet via cell phone towers.

The device will circulate for a week and units can be reserved.

For more information, contact Stephen Boggs at 574-353-7234 or via e-mail at
