Whitefish Community Library will be closed on Monday, January 17th in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. The library will reopen on Tuesday, January 18th at 10 a.m.
Thanks to the fine weather for making snow blocks and industrious StoryCircle attendees, our StoryCircle Fort has a new layer, and some tunnels and even a back door! It’s a sweet place to sit on mats and listen to a story or two. Today we had stories about BOXES and all the fun things that can be imagined with them. Boxes even make fine snow block molds!
The temps were forecast to be above 10 degrees for today, so even though we might barely get there (now forecasting 10 degrees for 11 a.m.), we will be having StoryCircle in the library’s back yard today at 10:30 a.m. We have a story that incorporates plenty of action and lots of snow to play in, so we will stay warm. And any weather is good weather for play! image caption: “If you choose not to find joy in the snow, you will have less joy in your life, but still the same amount of snow.” ~ anonymous
The forecast calls for temps ranging from 9 to 14 degrees on Thursday, Dec. 30th, so StoryCircle will be cancelled for only the second time since July 2020. We’ll resume StoryCircle in the New Year (Thursday, Jan. 6) with an action story which includes an obstacle course in the library’s back yard.
Meanwhile, come in and warm up at the library, where there are books and movies and music CDs especially for kids (have you ever checked those out?) And Snowfolk BINGO is in full swing with many more snowfolk eager to go to their new homes. Download a BINGO card
The library will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day so that staff can enjoy the holiday with their families. It will re-open Monday, Dec. 27 at 10 a.m.
We at Whitefish Community Library wish all a wonderful holiday season! Kids at StoryCircle on Thursday stand proudly in front of the giant snowman they built in the library’s back yard.
Look how happy these Snowfolk are to be going to their new homes! Have you picked up your Snowfolk BINGO card yet? There are lots of Whitefish Library snowfolk waiting to be chosen. Download a BINGO card here. And Snowfolk is our StoryCircle theme on Thursday, Dec. 23rd at 10:30 a.m. We’ll meet in the library’s Big Back Yard so we can play in our own pristine snowfield and perhaps fill it with Snowfolk of our own!
Thursday will be the last day that the library will be open before Christmas break so be sure to stop in before 6 p.m. and stock up on books, DVDs and CDs.
StoryCircle was all about snowflakes today and what a perfect day for it! We were able to read parts of Kenneth Libbrecht’s beautiful book “The Secret Life of a Snowflake” (the library has a brand new copy)!
We used a magnifying glass to see the snowflakes falling on our sleeves, and we made coffee filter snowflakes…but we had to hurry before the watercolors for our snowflake project froze!
