The Whitefish Community Library staff, Trustees, Association and Friends wish you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving. We welcome you back Saturday, November 29, 12-5.
After the two Tuesday holidays, we are happy to announce that Kramer, our therapy dog, is back in the community room. We are resuming our “Read to Kramer” every Tuesday afternoon at 3:30. Hope to see you there!
On Monday, November 17, 2014 at 6:30 pm in the Heckathorn Community Room, take yourself back to the early days of Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park. Join author and historian Sharon Randolph as she recounts the stories of early homesteaders, prospectors, and explorers as they experience the wilds of the Rockies by foot and horseback.
We hope you will be able to join us for this wonderful program on the history of one of our nation’s national treasures – Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.
Jamie, our wonderful library friend, was literally clowning around Thursday at story hour.
Please come join the fun Thursday during the regularly scheduled story time for face painting and tricks and treats. The maze will remain up during regular library hours Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
Please join Spur Award winning author, Carol Buchanan for a special program ” A VACUUM OF LAW: MONTANA’S VIGILANTES AND THE LAW IN 1863-1864.” During the Civil War, people rushed to Alder Gulch, one of the largest gold strikes in U. S. History. Along with millions in gold, the gold-seekers found no laws to restrain rampant greed. Ruffians ruled and murder was tolerated. By 1864 the Vigilantes had established a rule of law and hanged 22 members of a criminal conspiracy and set up a “People’s Court”. The program starts at 1:00 in the Heckathorn Community Room. Seating is limited so come early!
