Our Storytime panels have their new vinyl jackets just in time for Autumn! We won’t let the weather stop us. Storytime Stroll at Baker Park Tuesdays at 1 p.m. and Thursdays at the Library at 11 a.m.
The library will be closed Monday, Oct 12, 2020 for Indigenous People’s Day. We will be open again on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at 10:00 a.m.
It is currently the policy of the Whitefish Community Library to quarantine all book drop materials for 3 days. Do not be alarmed if an item is showing checked out on your card and you returned it. Staff back dates all material to the date it was returned.
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:
