Celebrate “Grinchmas” with us on Saturday, Dec. 4, at 10 a.m. in the library meeting room. A ticket to Whoville is required for anyone older than little Cindy Lou Who (who was no more than two) and can be picked up at the library, or call or email us to reserve spots. We will have hot cocoa and cookies, fun crafts and games for kids, read “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” and there may even be an appearance by the Grinch himself. Attendance is limited, so get your tickets early. 

If you’re traveling for the holidays, be sure to download our apps. With Libby you can listen to audiobooks and read eBooks and magazines. With Flipster you can download magazines with many craft patterns to take on the road. Freegal offers three hours per day of music streaming and five downloads per week of over a million songs, including Adele’s newest album, all ad-free. You can even make your own playlists. Set up Kanopy Kids on a tablet for a month’s worth of endless educational entertainment for your kids, or watch a Great Courses video or movie. The library offers lots of entertainment, all completely free with your library card.

The library will be closed Dec. 23-25 for the Christmas holiday and Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 for the New Year holiday. The library is open Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Wednesday and Friday reserved for those 65 and older or immunocompromised, please wear a mask during this hour; and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Curbside pickup is available for everyone during open hours. Please call us at 406-883-8225 or email us at: with questions or to request curbside pickup.
