Things are buggy around here!

The 2008 Summer Reading Program is off to a great start! So far, over 600 kids have signed up to keep track of their reading to earn some prizes. If they read any extra hours, they can be part of Readers to the Rescue, which is helping the Flathead County Animal Shelter this year.

We have discovered facts about butterflies, ladybugs, ants, beetles and spiders. During the next few weeks you can visit us and learn about bees, worms, and even bugs that you can eat!!!

One of the most interesting things that we have in our branches are the space age ant colonies. NASA engineers figured out how send ants into space safely and we have an example of the kind of colony they used. Come and see how these fascinating creatures have built their tunnels in the special gel. It's pretty awesome!
