Autumn at North Lake County Public Library

The Family Summer Reading Program at North Lake County Public Library in Polson reached its finale with an Awards Ceremony on August 15th.  Winners and non-winners alike proclaimed the program a success after enjoying two months of fun-filled activities.  Along with reading hundreds of books, kids had a great time at each weekly activity program, which included a scavenger hunt, outdoor games, arts, crafts, and the hilarious annual Bug Race.  All Family Summer Reading Program participants should stop by the library to pick up their certificates.

North Lake County Public Library’s fall hours will begin on September 3rd after the three-day Labor Day weekend.  During the school year, the library stays open evenings to accommodate students with homework or research needs.  Hours will be 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Fridays, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays through May.  As always, the library is closed Sundays and holidays.

Fall Story Time will resume on Thursday, September 19th.  This one-hour program for children ages 3-5 and their caregivers offers books, songs, finger plays, rhymes, and stories. Everyone is welcome to join Puff the Magic Dragon and Youth Services Librarian, Miss Marty, for the fun!  Story Time themes will be announced as the date draws closer.

Mother Goose Time for babies and toddlers is offered year-round.  Very young children (ages 0-3) and their caregivers are welcome to attend the half-hour sessions on Mondays at 10:15 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. for nursery rhymes and stories with Mother Goose.

Stop by the circulation desk at #2 First Ave. E. in Polson or call 883-8225 to find out more about our upcoming Technology Tuesdays.  Our trainer will offer classes on those days that will be designed to increase your computer (or electronic device) proficiency at any level.  One-on-one tutorials will continue to be offered any day of the week.  If you’re confused about how to work your e-reader, MP3 player, computer, etc., please call the circulation desk for an appointment or watch for our schedule of classes. Beginners are welcome along with those who are working to refine or ramp up their skills.

North Lake County Public Library also offers free public computer access and e-resources.  Or try the legal kiosk – a computer station dedicated to helping patrons find the law-related information and help they need.  In addition, many new books, DVDs, and audio books have been added to the collection, and patrons who enjoy the large-type collection will find hundreds of new selections. 

While you’re at the library, enjoy the freshly painted walls and shelves.  North Lake County Public Library is preparing for the gray days ahead with vibrant, welcoming new colors throughout!
