Library’s ‘Mother Goose’ is flying south 

POLSON — Join us on Monday, Dec. 28, at 10:30 a.m. for Mother Goose’s last session before she flies away. Don’t worry, she’ll be back sometime in 2021. Every week we read books and sing a song or two. You can find the links to these on our webpage:, on our Facebook page, or on our YouTube channel. 

All items in our Library Gift Nook are 20 percent off through December.

The Partners Sharing Group is exploring ways of increasing the availability of new materials to patrons and making hold fulfillment more efficient. Some new items may be marked for “local holds only” before becoming available to readers at all libraries. As we move through this process, we will provide an opportunity for feedback on your experience browsing the collection and placing holds. 

The library is open  Monday through Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. We are also open Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. for the vulnerable population. Curbside pickup is available for everyone from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday – Friday.  Masks are required.  The library will close at 4 p.m. on Dec. 31. We will also be closed Friday, Jan. 1 and Saturday, Jan. 2. Please call us at 406-883-8225 or email us at: with questions or to request curbside pickup.
