As Women’s History Month concludes, we remember someone special to the Belton community.
Miss Lena Armstrong was appointed as librarian of the Carnegie Library in 1946 and served as Belton’s librarian for 52 years until her retirement in 1998.
From bringing schoolbooks to the library for children to read over the summer, to providing Roscoe Harrison a library card during segregation, her actions showed that she believed anyone could and should read. For her abundant service to the community, the Belton library building is named in her honor
TxDOT plans to close Loop 121 at its intersection with I-14 two times this week due to construction.

An event is always enhanced when the Belton Area Chamber of Commerce breaks out the red ribbon, which it did on Friday for the dedication of an expansion of the Nolan Creek Hike & Bike Trail.
We’re grateful to have such a dynamic partnership with this great organization.
This morning we dedicated Phase V of the Nolan Creek Hike & Bike Trail, which connects Holland Road with Liberty Park. Thanks to all those who have helped make this beautiful trail possible.
A portion of the Nolan Creek Hike & Bike Trail in Harris Community Park will temporarily close for trail repairs beginning Monday, March 28. The closure is expected to last until Monday, April 11 (weather permitting).
During construction some may prefer to walk on the grass to the creek side of the project, however, a detour will be established for those who wish to stay on hard surfaces.
Please continue to enjoy the trail, and look for detour signs soon showing an alternative route.
Mayor Wayne Carpenter just proclaimed today Pete Fredenburg Day.

From the archive today we have a photo of the Belton Train Depot in 1927. The bright red barn building we see today was built in 1899 and has since stood the test of time.
If you have been by the library recently, you might have seen the two boxcars that hint at that history. Currently, the depot is undergoing renovations for future use to add to the growing downtown community once more.
