It was Pumpkin Storytime today! We’re building up to Halloween with the “Disguises” Storytime next week (Oct 20), and finally, “Halloween” itself at the Oct. 27 Storytime. Ooooo, we can’t wait! Meanwhile, we still have craft supplies left if you want to make your very own Pumpkin Person.
It is with great sadness and deep gratitude that we inform our library patrons that Joan Smith recently passed away. Joan began writing her book reviews in 1998 as a gift to the newly constructed Whitefish Library. Nearly 500 of her reviews appeared in the Whitefish Pilot, the Beacon, Montana Woman and on our Whitefish Community Library webpage. Proceeds from her book “Books Worth a Look”, which contained her first 237 reviews were donated to the Whitefish Community Library. We are saddened by the news of her passing but so grateful to have known her. Our love to her family and to her husband Larry, and son Stephen. She will be missed.

Every Tuesday will be “Teen: Books into Movies” at 5pm, and every Thursday at 5pm will be “After School Films”. Times may be adjusted as we try out this new venture. All are invited!

The State Library has mapped all the libraries using the Montana Shared Catalog. We’ve added red stars to give you a bird’s eye view of which libraries and their branches are Whitefish Community Library’s partners in the MSC Partners Group. As you can see, being part of MSC Partners allows us to share across Montana.
