“Build a Better World” @ Your Library this summer….

Published on 05/31/17

“Build a Better World” family programs replace Storytime on Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. for the summer, starting June 15. We’ve chosen our visitors from among those who help build and sustain our community, in keeping with that theme. Among our community builders are Whitefish Legacy Partners (June 22), Wild Wings Raptor Recovery (July 6), the North Valley Music School (TBA), and Big Sky Astronomy Club (TBA). Also, a special Clifford the Big Red Dog program will happen on August 10th, with Clifford visiting, photographs with Clifford, and six stations of activities. Check our schedule, and mark June 15 for the start of “Build a Better World.” New attached image Images are copyrighted. Contact CSLP at contact@cslpreads.org for more information.

How Do Yetis Visit the Library?

Published on 01/26/17

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. New attached image
