Whitefish Community Library will be closed, Monday, January 21st, for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The Library will reopen on Tuesday, the 22nd, at 10 a.m.
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!

We’re excited to welcome back Miss Heather from Stumptown Art Studio this week on Thursday, July 19, at 10:30 a.m. Children were completely absorbed in her “Storybook Art” project and we look forward to seeing what she’ll do next!
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.
