Kathy Borchers presents her annual Ireland program on Saturday, March 11, at 1pm in the Community Room. She will talk about Thomas Francis Meagher, Irish patriot, who was a general in the Civil War and who died in Montana while serving as the acting Territorial Governor of Montana. Also, learn some Irish, smell some peat, visit some castles (figuratively) and taste real Irish Soda Bread. For more about Kathy Borchers and her yearly celebration of all things Irish, read last year’s story in the Flathead Beacon:

Due to the upcoming Yeti Invasion (AKA Whitefish Winter Carnival), the Library will be closed Saturday, February 4th. Meanwhile, enjoy some of the Yetis made by Storytime attendees. First, imagine you hear growling sounds….
While the REAL Yetis won’t be visiting the Library at the Feb. 2 Storytime, we’ll tell tales on them, including the legend of Whitefish’s Winter Carnival composed especially for the preschool crowd. Add songs to get the “wiggles” out, and a Yeti craft and our Storytime is complete! Join WCL’s preschool storytime at 10:30 Thursdays in the Heckathorn Room.
Join us every Monday at 4pm to enjoy movies, and eat popcorn and pretzels. Look forward to several moves, including Maze Runner, Monster vs. Aliens, Scorch Trials, Turbo, Life of Pi, the Croods and Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief. Call the library for further details 862-9914.
