Our kids and teens deserve a pat on the back!

Readers to the Rescue continues to be a huge motivator in the Summer Reading Program. Readers can read log hours to get a prize for themself. After that quota is met, all hours above and beyond roll over into the Readers to the Rescue program. This summer our kids and teens logged 12,965 extra hours and maxed out the donation of $1,500 to the Flathead County Animal Shelter. Kirsten Holland, director of the shelter, brought in animals and thanked the children for their efforts. The Friends of the Flathead County Library pledged the maximum donation of $1,500 to encourage children to continue reading throughout the summer. You can donate money, books or purchase books from the Friends to help out the cause. Lynn Kelly (L) & Kirsten Holland (R) are in the picture to the right.
