For Our Youngest Patrons

Published on 05/25/20

Before you can read, many people read to you. And boy, do we like doing that for our toddlers at Whitefish Community Library. We love the reactions, we love the crawling away and the crawling back, we love the growing attention as time goes by and toddlers learn to focus, and we love singing those silly songs. Catch us doing that, from our kitchen, or wherever we can, on our new YouTube channel, WCL Kids. We’re just starting, but give us some time and plenty of feedback, and we think we’ll have something that our youngest patrons can really enjoy. New attached image

TO OUR PATRONS

Published on 04/23/20

We miss you! For the past week our staff has been formulating a step-by-step procedure for a ‘soft opening’. Like the rest of the country we will need to take into consideration the safety of our patrons and our staff, and it may take several weeks before we can actually open our doors to foot traffic. We have several thousand items checked out that need to be checked in and shelved. We have several hundred items that are in-transit between our Partners’ libraries. Once those two steps are completed, the next step will be to offer curbside service until we feel comfortable proceeding with opening the doors on a limited basis. We will be following the safety procedures outlined by the State and City of Whitefish. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Please check our website periodically for updates. Meanwhile, stay well and know we look forward to serving you again.
