Our new storytime starts today (if you’re reading this on the first day of Fall, Sept. 22, that is!) We’ll have our story panels set up by 1 p.m. at Baker Street Park, on the corner of 5th and Central. A librarian-led reading of “Little Owl Lost” starts at that time, but if you can’t make it, the panels will stay up until 5 p.m. Giant bubbles will be special guests at this storytime. Hope to see you there, if not at the first one, then at another – Baker Park Storytime Stroll is scheduled for Tuesdays through October. caption: Illustration from “Little Owl Lost” by Chris Haughton
We love apples! So in honor of apple harvest time, the story at the Stroll this week is “The Apple-Pip Princess,” a gorgeously illustrated brand new fairy tale by Jane Ray. Come stroll with us. We’ll end up in the Library’s Back Yard where the fun activities happen.
Just one example: Joseph Vasquez, winner of the People’s Choice Award at the 3rd Annual Edible Book Contest. And the cake was deee-licious as well as beautiful. Here are complete lists of WCL’s winners for Summer 2020:
Held outside the Library under the spacious portico, the 3rd Annual Edible Book Contest looks to be just as much fun as the first two. Come with an entry, or just to see how creative your fellow readers are when it comes to making an edible representation of a book. And then there’s the Feast after the awards are given out….YUM! Books never tasted so good. If you want to enter, check out our Edible Book Contest page.
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.
