October library programs offer something for everyone

October came barreling in this year at the library. We have had a lot going on and even more to come this fall.

This month we are celebrating the National Endowment for the Arts Big Read in partnership with Missoula Public Library. On Thursday, Oct. 18, at 6 p.m., join us in our meeting room as we welcome Stefanie Nordberg with Polson Geocachers. She will talk about what geocaching is and will give you the tools to start your own geocaching quest. The theme for the Thursday, Oct. 25, Story Time is “On the Yellow Brick Road.” Join Kendra at 10:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. for a scavenger hunt around the library as well as an introduction to pathfinding skills, a reading walk, and a fun craft.

Tuesdays in October at 2 p.m. in the library atrium, we will host “Learn to Knit” sessions with volunteer, Linda Kittle.  If you have always wanted to learn to knit, this is for you. We will provide the needles and yarn for practice. Angela will have the tea kettle on and a selection of tea will be provided.

On Saturday, Oct. 20, at 11 a.m. the library will once again participate in the International Observe the Moon Night. This year we welcome Loren Spencer, a Computational Physics student at the University of Montana, who will talk about NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter. This program is for all ages and is sponsored by our NASA@My Library grant.

On Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 2 p.m., Heather will teach a class called “Google Drive and the Cloud.” This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

A big thank you to our Friends of the Library for providing adjustable height desk stands for the staff.  We are so grateful to them for their support of the library and its employees.

Be sure to bring the kids by on Halloween for trick-or-treating at the library. We will have candy until it is gone.

The North Lake County Library is open Mondays through Thursdays from 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Fridays from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Visit our website at:, our Facebook page, and check the calendar section for updates on the happenings at the library.
