Meet our Partner Libraries

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.

Raptors to visit the Library

If you’ve never seen a raptor up close (birds that hunt and feed on other animals), Thursday, June 30th at 10:30 a.m. is your chance to do so. Montana Wild Wings Recovery – a wildlife rehab non-profit – will visit the Library. If the weather permits, we’ll be set up on the lawn east of the Library building between the Library and Central School Playground.
