The Governor has issued a stay-at-home (or shelter-in-place) directive for residents of the State of Montana starting 12:01 a.m. on March 28, 2020, through 11:59 p.m. on Friday, April 23, 2020. Because we are not considered an essential service the Whitefish Community Library will need to cancel our curbside service as of Friday, March 28, at 5pm. Patrons will need to pick up their items before 5pm. No staff will be on duty. Items on hold not picked up will be held until May 1. We apologize that we aren’t able to continue with this service. Please do not return library books until May 1, 2020 which is the date ALL checked out materials are due.
1) We will push current due dates and available hold expiration dates out to a future date. 2) We will be suspending all Overdue Notice, Assumed Lost, and PLO processes until we reopening. 3) We are not charging overdue fines during closure.
Please, everyone, stay home. Stay safe. Be well.
The Whitefish library will be assisting with the 2020 Census. Our job is to provide technology for people who want to fill out their questionnaires on-line, provide a phone number for those who wish to respond verbally, and assist with printing out questionnaires for those who wish to mail their responses. No paper questionnaires will be mailed. The Census results decide how much money the states receive from the Federal Government. (Montana received in 2010 approximately $2,000 per person.) Census results also decide how many representatives Montana can elect.
ITA has cancelled all team visits at this time. We will keep you posted and hopefully we can resume again soon.
As in every December, the snow and the snowpeople have descended on Whitefish Community Library! Big ones, little ones, funny ones, and more. And two giant teddy bears are ready to cuddle young readers. Come on in and warm up by the fireplace!
