We hope you all had a fun and safe Fourth of July. Next week we’ll have another author visit us for readings and signings.

At 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 18, join us as we celebrate Christmas in July with Bigfork author Leslie Budewitz. Leslie’s latest cozy mystery, set in fictional Jewel Bay, Montana is “As the Christmas Cookie Crumbles.” Leslie will talk a little about the cozy mystery genre and will be available to sign. Join us in our meeting room for this fun event.

The second of our three-part series called “Adulting 101” is set for 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 17. This session will focus on etiquette as it relates to work, dating and social media. We will also be talking about personal safety and the freshman blues. Lunch will be served during the event, so RSVP by calling the library at 406-883-8225 or on our Facebook event page.
