“Beautiful Ireland” will be presented at Whitefish Community Library by Kathy Borchers on Saturday, Mar 23, at 1pm. A special addition to this popular program will be Irish guitarist Maggie Ferguson who will be entertaining you with Irish music. Your ‘tour’ begins in the oldest Stone Age ruins in Europe; you will visit the home of Thomas Francis Meagher, Irish patriot, and acting territorial governor of Montana. You will visit many castle ruins and Kilmainhan Gaol where the patriots from the 1916 Rising were executed. Listen to the Irish National Anthem, learn some Irish words and sample some Irish Soda Bread.
Whitefish Community Library would like to thank the Whitefish Community Foundation for their grant to purchase two new staff computers to replace the original 2011 computers. We appreciate the support the Foundation has given us over the past many years. Their generosity has benefited not only the library but many non-profits that struggle to offer services to our community.

Starting Tuesday, January 22, 2019 (and appearing weekly!), R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) and the library will host a program to improve children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a dog. R.E.A.D. dogs are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team. Animals are ideal reading companions because they help increase relaxation and lower blood pressure, listen attentively, do not judge, laugh or criticize, allow children to proceed at their own pace and are less intimidating than peers. Call the library at 862-9914 for more information!
