Whitefish welcomes new snowpersons!

The newest snowpeeps have made their way from the cold, lonely store shelves to the warm, welcoming atmosphere of the Whitefish branch library. All snowpeople afficianados are encouraged to come in to admire them. You may register your guess on how many snowpeople are in the library from Jan. 4th to Feb. 5th, the kickoff of the Whitefish Winter Carnival.

Oh yeah, we have books, DVD's, downloadable books and other goodies there, too- check it out!

Busting the doors down to get books!

Over the weekend, we had a minor incident at the Main Library in Kalispell. We have not confirmed that the perpetrator was indeed a library patron needing their book fix, although that is a rumor that I just started. In the future, please enter the building during library hours only. Fortunately, there was no vandalism inside of the library, so come on in and make a run on literature!
