Thank you Whitefish Library Association for applying for and receiving a “Round-up For Safety” grant from Flathead Electric Co-op. A special THANK YOU to Flathead Electric Co-op for providing the funding to replace the broken plastic floor outlet covers with heavy duty brass covers. This has been a safety issue for several years and knowing that we need not worry about our patrons tripping or children poking small fingers into the broken outlets is a big relief. The Whitefish Community Library is grateful to Flathead Electric Co-op for their generosity and support of our library and other non-profits over the years.
Starting Tuesday, September 17, 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!
