ARTICLE PUBLISHED September 14, 2011, Valley Journal
POLSON—The North Lake County Public Library in Polson is joining libraries across the state in participating in “Montana Library Day” on Wednesday, September 14, 2011 to show how important academic, public, school, and special libraries are to the state of Montana.
On September 14, North Lake County Public Library will compile statistics, customer comments, photographs, and other data chronicling a typical library day. The results collected will be added to those of other libraries across Montana to show how libraries provide invaluable services to Montana citizens.
Library Director Marilyn Trosper said, “I hope 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.”
Montana State Librarian, Darlene Staffeldt, added, “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 Day is a wonderful time to show support for your local libraries by paying them a visit, seeing all that they have to offer, and being counted on this historic day.”
“Montana Library Day” is a project of the Montana Library Association, the Montana State Library, all 750 Montana libraries, and North Lake County Public Library. For more information on Montana Library Day, please contact the State Library at (406) 444-3115 or visit http://msl.mt.gov/LibraryDay/.
