Lunchtime stories at the gazebo

The Bellingham Public Library is inviting residents to listen to stories while eating lunch outdoors from 12:15 to 1 p.m. Wednesdays beginning this week and running through the end of October. Weather permitting, the storytelling sessions will take place on the town common behind the gazebo . Organizers suggest that audience members bring a picnic blanket along with their lunch.
