From the first song welcoming everyone including sharks, whales and ninja turtles, and a colorful parachute floating overhead, to the soothing notes of “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star,” there was no break in the action during North Valley Music School’s “Music Together®” program last Thursday. Singing, movement,and musical instruments made an engaging morning for the 60+ participants.
Whitefish Legacy Partners naturalist Kim Corette had us hooting like owls, flying like moths, and crawling like bears at Summer Reading’s “Build A Better World” event on Thursday the 22nd. We learned about Wit the Owl, Whitefish Trail Mascot, and spent time on our own versions of Wit. Next week: North Valley Music School! visits with musical fun. Be ready to move and sing!
“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.” Images are copyrighted. Contact CSLP at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Due to the upcoming Yeti Invasion (AKA Whitefish Winter Carnival), the Library will be closed Saturday, February 4th. Meanwhile, enjoy some of the Yetis made by Storytime attendees. First, imagine you hear growling sounds….
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.
