Please do not return library books until May 1, 2020 which is the date ALL checked out materials are due.

Meet our Partner Libraries

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.
