Stef Johnson

We'd like to say thank you to Stef Johnson for her 7 years of serving the public and helping staff. Many patrons and staff have shared their gratitude because of her wit, knowledge and enthusiasm to help out. We'll miss you and wish you the best of luck at the Butte Silver Bow Public Library and also, in the completion of obtaining your master's degree. Stop by and say hello to her when you're cruising I-90 & I-15. Feared by computers and appreciated by everyone, Stef- thanks for the memories!

The Great Bird Debate

While I was hiking, I was fortunate enough to come across this good looking bird. I had a few ideas what it could be and because of a couple good librarians, the mystery was solved. Of course, we have wonderful bird identification books in the Flathead County Library.

So, what kind of bird is it? Comment away and we'll unveil the answer next week.

Blue Grouse is the winner, to avoid copyright issues, I'll not post pics but you can do a Google Image search and find some great shots...

Honoring Local Authors

Yesterday the Whitefish Branch Library hosted an open house to honor many of our local authors...lots of wonderful refreshments and great conversation! These authors have written about so many different things, it would be hard to describe them all here. Many authors had their books and magazine articles available to look through. One of most interesting parts of the afternoon was hearing about their inspiration, whether they were writing fiction or nonfiction. There are quite a few books and articles coming out this year, too. We definitely have an energetic and prolific group of writers in our midst!
