Come have fun with Christmas Movie Trivia!

We can't wait to see you!
Is there going to be a Christmas Parade? Or will you guys also take it from us like the 4th of July parade?
Think about the kindest people from your hometown... The ones who are always there to lend a hand, whether it be at school, the local football game, the annual fundraiser, or to an individual who needs help. That is my aunt and uncle, Susan and Mel Kelder of Belton, Texas. Back in July, Mel was diagnosed with COVID-19 and has had a really rough go of it for the last few months, and it's put major financial strain on the family. Please check out (and SHARE!) this link, and help out a bit if you can. I know times are hard right now, but they're absolutely more than worth every penny you'll throw their way. 💜💜💜
Has the council said when they are going to put up the new sign with the new name for Freedom Park yet?
This is a photo and video of several sweet little babies this morning at 6:30am. I have the parent’s permission to post. You can ONLY SEE THEM because there are 3 cars with headlights intentionally pointing at them (including mine). Didn’t know until today this was happening across the highway from me as I have a high schooler. YES! I SAID HIGHWAY. This is FM-439 and they are standing at Briana Drive with no light 💡 at 6:30 am on a HIGHWAY. This is a dangerous part of the highway that has many bad accidents all the time. 2 lane only. Curves and bends you n each side. How can we fix this?? Someone have a good idea of who can help?? This is dangerous for the babies and their parents standing there in the dark and it’s not even cold yet!!

Anyone that can help make calls, please do. I am also going to call the suggested numbers and offices below.

Who: Lost Fur baby

Where: Coleman American Moving Service West, 2000 US-190 Frontage Rd, Belton, TX 76513

I know this may be a long shot but, it’s worth a try.
My daughter-in-law’s fur baby went missing 4 years ago. They were stationed in Ft. Hood and then received orders to go to Germany. The moving company accidentally took her fur baby with the other furniture (he somehow got into the sofa unnoticed). They went to the warehouse to try and find him but no luck. Every time they would call, the company would report that they “sighted” him but that’s all. Now, no new updates are received and we feel hope is lost. Please, if you’ve seen him, please contact me. He is very deeply missed.
***he has a very distinctive mustache***
anyone else at stillhouse on Monday the 10th and witnessed a shallowford company truck and a blue car doing sexual acts! I've contacted the company that's just plan sick.... I did my research I heard her tell raymond I'm guessing it's the raymond pierluisses I see several complaints on
Bell county residents need to get together and discuss our local Public Servant's . The thing's that are being done are not in the best interest of the " WE THE PEOPLE " and , due to the
" PANDEMIC " we are not able to ask about anything that is not already on their agenda and we can't ask for anything to be added for discussion to "Their Agenda" Anybody got any ideas on getting citizens together to discuss matters that effect us all. We also need to get our children involved in local politics it is very important that they are aware of decisions being made that will have impacts on their futures. Things nobody wants to do or participate in now
I would like to thank Matt Bates and his staff at Belton Parks and Recreation for the wonderful job they do of keeping our parks clean and well manicured. I spent most of my time off during this shutdown exploring Belton's Downtown area and the creek at Yettie Polk park. I took hundreds of photos and walked miles of beautiful park land to help keep my sanity. I befriended many birds, ducks, fish, and people at the park. We are truly Blessed to live in a city that employs top notch people such as Matt Bates to run their departments. Belton, Texas ROCKS!
I loved the book you have on the trail for Mother's Day. I read it to my kids when they were little. It made me cry when I saw the book, lol.

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.
Both closures will occur overnight, beginning at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Thursday's closure is scheduled for 9 p.m. The road is projected to reopen by 6 a.m. on Thursday and Friday.


Partnerships make communities stronger.
At the dedication of Phase V of the Nolan Creek Hike & Bike Trail last week we recognized the following individuals/organizations for their roles in establishing and expanding the trail in Belton:
TxDOT (Area Engineer Stephen Kasperg)
Belton ISD (Superintendent Matt Smith)
Mayor Pro Tem David K. Leigh and his wife, Belton ISD Trustee, Janet Leigh.
Former Mayor Bill Holmes
University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (Dr. Steve Theodore)


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.
Congratulations on a hall of fame worthy career, Coach!

Today we have a look at one of our oldest photographs of Belton in our archives. A shot of Belton in 1885, 35 years after Belton was officially founded.

To some of our patrons it might look a bit familiar as this image is one of our library card designs.

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.
