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!
It was Pumpkin Storytime today! We’re building up to Halloween with the “Disguises” Storytime next week (Oct 20), and finally, “Halloween” itself at the Oct. 27 Storytime. Ooooo, we can’t wait! Meanwhile, we still have craft supplies left if you want to make your very own Pumpkin Person.
The State Library has mapped all the libraries using the Montana Shared Catalog. We’ve added red stars to give you a bird’s eye view of which libraries and their branches are Whitefish Community Library’s partners in the MSC Partners Group. As you can see, being part of MSC Partners allows us to share across Montana.
Thanks to our sponsors and partners for a very enjoyable Summer Reading Challenge 2016. We had enlightening and fun visits from local businesses and non-profits, as well as donations to crafts and games events and prizes for those participating in the Reading Challenge. Please say “Thanks!” when you encounter any of our wonderful sponsors and partners around town.
If you’ve never seen a raptor up close (birds that hunt and feed on other animals), Thursday, June 30th at 10:30 a.m. is your chance to do so. Montana Wild Wings Recovery – a wildlife rehab non-profit – will visit the Library. If the weather permits, we’ll be set up on the lawn east of the Library building between the Library and Central School Playground.
