Summer Reading Still Going Strong!

We just completed the first half of the 2010 summer reading program and all of the libraries have been jumpin'! We have had 431 children read enough hours to earn a prize. We know these kids love to read because they have reported reading over 4500 hours so far this summer. Keep up the good work, everyone!
We would like to announce the winners of our Session 1 grand prizes! The children won a $10 gift certificate to Imagination Station. Congratulations to all!
Bigfork/Kalispell: Henry McRae
Columbia Falls: Venessa Schmidt
Whitefish: Braya Hobson

"Boatloads" of Fun

Kids from around the Flathead Valley are hearing some interesting stories and creating some imaginative projects following the theme of "Making A Splash" @ Your Library! During the past week or so kids created some seaworthy sailboats in Kalispell, went fishin' after hearing some "whopper" fish stories in Columbia Falls, and frolicked with undersea creatures, including mermaids, in Whitefish. We even hear some sharks were spotted at the Bigfork library. Things are going "swimmingly" well for us this summer!!
