The Library will be closed Friday, May 12 for a Staff Training Day. We will be open Saturday May 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.  Our digital library is always open. Go to our website at to browse magazines, download e-books and audio books or stream videos using Kanopy.


We are currently operating at 301 16th Ave East (First United Methodist Church). We will be open for our regular hours of service: Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Church hours and services will continue as normal each Sunday.

Our book drop at the library building location has found a new home helping out another library. All returns need to be made at our temporary location of 301 16th Ave E. or to one of our Partner libraries (like Bigfork, Kalispell and Missoula). Remember, we are fine free for most items, so you won’t be charged if things are returned within 30 days of the due date. Please let us know if you need items renewed until you can return your materials. We’re still working on an afterhours solution for our temporary space.

Due to our renovation project, we must limit taking donations. We will accept one small box or bag per family, per week on Tuesdays. Thank you for your understanding as we settle into our temporary location. 

Mondays mean Mother Goose! Join us at 9:15 a.m. Mother Goose is geared toward ages 0 to 3, but all are welcome. We encourage parents and caregivers to participate with their children for this early learning time. Thursdays at 9:15 a.m. is Story Time. Join us to read books, make crafts and play games with your little ones. This program is geared for Kindergarten readiness ages 3-5. It is important that all children attending have an opportunity for appropriate, safe play for their age. Please be mindful of this when bringing older children to Mother Goose and younger children to Story Time.
