In response to the governors declared state of emergency to address the Coronavirus pandemic, the Bedford Central Library will be closed to the public beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020. As a result, The Bedford Community Health Foundation will make available curb side drop-off service for grant application delivery on March 18 through April 1st.

Our staff will be available to accept grant applications from 9 am to 3:30 pm each day. Prior to coming to drop-off your grant application, we ask that you call 540.586.5292 or call/text (540) 798-0214 so we can meet you outside. If someone is not available to meet you, please drop-off curbside to library staff and they will ensure we receive it.
