Bedford Library has served patrons from its beautiful building on Franklin Avenue since 1905. Today, patrons visit Bedford Library for many reasons, including its adult learning center on the second floor, at which adults develop literacy skills to meet their personal, educational and employment goals. Popular programs include fitness, gaming and early literacy offerings.
