Your parents knew them as “whirligigs.” You might have a commercial version known as a “fidget spinner.” The old-school version takes some skill to use. Pick up the latest Discovery Packet and try your hand.
In honor of huckleberry season, today’s (Thursday, July 30th) Storytime Stroll is “Blueberries for Sal,” a charming story about Little Sal and Little Bear, who get mixed up with their mothers on Blueberry Hill while picking blueberries. The story panels will be up until 2 p.m.
Whitefish Community Library has added over 400 brand new juvenile nonfiction books and juvenile audio books to our collection. These books were purchased thanks to a grant the Whitefish Library Association received from the Whitefish Community Foundation’s 2019 Great Fish Challenge. We were able to update material on coding, planets, mythology, sports figures, plants, transportation, the environment, human rights, insects, history, math, ancient civilizations, and many other subjects.
We’re starting something new! Our outside Storytime Stroll will allow us to maintain a safe distance while enjoying each other’s company, hearing a story, and doing something fun afterwards on the Library’s East Lawn. Thursday, July 23, at 11 a.m.is our inaugural Storytime Stroll.

For those of you who eagerly await summer and WCL’s Summer Reading program – you only have a few days left to wait.
Although the Library is not holding events this year due to the fluid situation of Covid-19, we still have Reading Logs (available starting June 8), and End-of-Challenge Prizes, and nothing will stop us from having our 3RD Annual Edible Book Contest – it will just be a little different this year!
Before you can read, many people read to you. And boy, do we like doing that for our toddlers at Whitefish Community Library. We love the reactions, we love the crawling away and the crawling back, we love the growing attention as time goes by and toddlers learn to focus, and we love singing those silly songs. Catch us doing that, from our kitchen, or wherever we can, on our new YouTube channel, WCL Kids. We’re just starting, but give us some time and plenty of feedback, and we think we’ll have something that our youngest patrons can really enjoy.
