Last Wednesday, September 14, Flathead County libraries and libraries across the state celebrated Montana Library Day. We asked for comments from library customers, took photos, and gathered statistics. There were many happy library visitors that day, and storytime at the Main Library was a big hit, featuring stories about gardens and a sunflower craft.
Some of our favorite survey comments finishing the phrase "I love my library because..."
"The staff are friendly. They smile!"
"It gets my son excited about reading."
"I’d be lost without it!"
"A great selection at a great value...free!"
"It has manga!"
Flathead County libraries had 1,368 visitors and 1,797 checkouts on September 14. Our libraries issued 23 new library cards and answered nearly 200 reference questions.
Statewide results will soon be available on the Montana State Library website.
