North Lake County Public Library in Polson is joining libraries across the state in participating in “Montana Library Week” September 29-October 5 to show how important academic, public, school, and special libraries are to the state of Montana.
During the week, North Lake County Public Library will document activity, customer comments, and collect photographs chronicling a typical library day. The results will be added to those of other libraries across Montana to show how libraries provide invaluable services to Montana citizens.
Library Director Marilyn Trosper noted that she hopes “our loyal patrons will stop by and be a part of this historic day. Libraries are more important than ever to our communities, and library usage is at record levels. We want all the citizens of Montana, and particularly our Montana lawmakers, to see what a typical day is like for a Montana library.”
North Lake County Public Library is located at #2 First Ave. E. in Polson (406-883-8225). Winter hours are now in effect: 11am – 8:00pm Monday through Thursday, 11am – 6pm Fridays, and 11am – 4pm Saturdays. The library is closed Sundays and holidays.
Montana State Librarian, Jennie Stapp, stated, “Montana libraries are issuing more library cards, circulating more materials, providing more computers and Internet service, and hosting more programs than at any other time in our collected history of serving Montanans. Montana Library Week is a wonderful time to show support for your local libraries by paying them a visit, seeing all that they have to offer, and participating in the weeklong celebration.”
“Montana Library Week” is a project of the Montana Library Association, the Montana State Library, and all 750 Montana libraries, including North Lake County Public Library. For more information, please contact the State Library
