Summer Reading Challenge kick-off is Thursday, June 27, 10:00 am at the Whitefish Community Library. Pick up a reading log and begin tracking your reading for incentives and prizes. And don’t forget to visit with some MACROINVERTEBRATES courtesy of special guest Cynthia Ingelfinger from the Whitefish Lake Institute! They’ll be visiting starting at 10:30 a.m.
Whitefish Community Library would like to thank the Whitefish Community Foundation for their grant to purchase two new staff computers to replace the original 2011 computers. We appreciate the support the Foundation has given us over the past many years. Their generosity has benefited not only the library but many non-profits that struggle to offer services to our community.
Starting Tuesday, January 22, 2019 (and appearing weekly!), R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dogs) and the library will host a program to improve children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a dog. R.E.A.D. dogs are registered therapy animals who volunteer with their owner/handlers as a team. Animals are ideal reading companions because they help increase relaxation and lower blood pressure, listen attentively, do not judge, laugh or criticize, allow children to proceed at their own pace and are less intimidating than peers. Call the library at 862-9914 for more information!
Please think of the Whitefish Library Association as you make your Holiday purchases from Amazon. Go to smile.amazon.com before you make your purchase, and type “Whitefish Library Association” as the charity of choice. Amazon will refund .05% of your purchase (no charge to you) to the Whitefish Library Association. This is a great way to support the library without a cost to you!
