Food for Fines program offered at library
National Library Week is April 7-13. We are offering our annual “Food for Fines” program during this week. If you have a few nagging library fines, this is your chance to clear them up. For each item of food brought in, we will waive $1 of your fines (not applicable to lost or damaged materials). All food will be donated to the Polson Loaves and Fish Food Pantry. If you do not have any fines but would still like to contribute to our food drive, please feel free to drop off your items at the library.
To kick off our summer reading program theme, “A Universe of Stories,” Joan Bird will present a Humanities Montana Conversations program entitled, “UFOs & Extraterrestrials in Montana” on Friday, April 26, at 5:30 p.m. in the library meeting room. Come share your UFO stories and learn about other documented sightings in Montana. All library programs are free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. This program will take the place of our “Friday Night at the Library” movie for April.
Would you like to learn about social media? Heather will be offering a class on Tuesday, April 30, at 2 p.m. on this popular subject. Reserve your spot by calling or stopping by the library.
We are forging on in our “Needle Arts” series with hand stitching, including embroidery, cross-stitch and crewel. There will be four sessions on Tuesdays at 2 p.m. in May – so save the dates. Supplies will be provided.
Watch for your ballot in the mail around April 17. We have two open seats on our board of trustees for you to vote on in the May 7 election. You can find information about the candidates running for the seats on our website or in the library.
We are having a sale in our library gift shop. All items are 25 percent off throughout April. Stop by and take a look at what we have to offer.
