For those of you who remember Al Bell, the man who traveled the world and gave programs to schools in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, please write up any memories you have and bring them into the library. We would like to display them for a few weeks, then give them to his daughters who will be doing a short program at Westview on Thursday, September 13 at 1:15 p.m. The program is sponsored by the library, and there will be a time for sharing memories as well as a question and answer session. This program is free and open to the public.
