Published on 02/02/23

As is the tradition, the Whitefish Community Library will be closed for the Saturday of Winter Carnival (Feb. 4, this year), so staff and families can enjoy the Kiddie Carnival at the Middle School, the Pie Social at the Catholic Church, and the Parade, among other things. The library will re-open on Monday, February 6 at 10 p.m.
