Jeannette Rankin: American Conscience

Published on 02/14/20

Mary Jane Bradbury, as Jeannette, discusses her journey from grassroots suffragist to being the first woman to participate in United States government. Hear in Jeannette’s own words her views on equality and government reform – words that ring true today.

“Learn to Code” a program facilitated by Mr. Patrick Brodie will be presented at the Whitefish Community Library on Wednesdays at 3:30, and is free to all ages. Last week some of the group built simple websites using HTML and css, this week we will review what we learned and attach some basic javascript to see how it all works together.

I’ll be more available for questions from intermediate students this week as well.

No prior experience with coding is required and he suggests you bring your own laptop. You will “learn at your own pace by following a set curriculum with in person tutoring, OR, bring your coding project and ideas to get assistance planning and bring it to life.” Excited boy and girl by laptop

Starting Tuesday, January 7, 2020 (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! Girl with dog reading a book together

Raptors Visit on July 12

Published on 07/10/18

PHOTO RAPTORS VISIT THE LIBRARY

Wild Wings Recovery Center visits the Library at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 12th, bringing their education birds for all to see and admire. Pending weather, we’ll meet on the lawn east of the Library. Here’s what we’ve learned from several visits by Wild Wings: The birds will get the shady spot by the trees. We sit and observe as Wild Wings volunteers bring the birds to us so that we can see them up close. We don’t clap or touch, and try not to make sudden movements that might startle the raptors. They are fascinating to see and (sometimes) hear. Raptors to visit the Library
