POLSON — National Library Week was celebrated nationwide the week of April 11-17. One event held at the Polson City Library was the announcement of winners in the library’s coloring and poster contest. Complete with cookies and punch, the event drew winners of the contest and their parents, grandparents and friends. The contest itself attracted 332 participants, 192 in the coloring contest and 145 in the poster contest according to Bonnie Triepke, Volunteer Coordinator for the Library District Steering Committee.
