From the Manager

Josh Andra

Visit the Bellville branch of M/RCPL and share in our passion for reading and lifelong learning. As a manager, I am proud to participate in several library-sponsored book clubs including the Bellville Book Club and the Bromfield Book Club, which celebrates Richland County author Louis Bromfield and local history. You'll also want to visit during the Bellville Fair week when we host the competitive art show. At the Bellville branch library, we're part of the community; our mission is to give back and enrich the lives of our community members.
