Closed October 11th for Staff Development Day
On Monday, October 11th the library will be closed so that the staff can accomplish a big reorganization of the adult fiction section. This has been a project nearly three years in the making and we are finally through putting genre stickers on the 7,700 plus adult fiction books. This organization method is often referred to as the “book store model” but you may have heard us refer to it as “genre-fying.” We will create maps and will clearly label sections to make finding your favorite genres easier. Organizing our collection this way will allow us to identify how popular a genre is, discover what genres we are missing or lacking in, and will give you an opportunity to discover new authors in your genres of choice. We hope you enjoy this change! If you disagree with a genre assigned to a book, please let us know. We base the genre assignment on jacket descriptions and online resources, but there is nothing like actually reading the book. And no, we don’t get to do that all day.
What's happening at the library?
Montana's Treasured Past: Ghost Towns and Gold
Lizzy will be your guide on this tour around Montana’s Ghost Towns on the National Geographic Giant Map of Montana. Our paranormal enthusiast will share some spooky stories of Montana’s history, perfect for an October eve. After the presentation we will share ghost stories or experiences people have had while visiting these intriguing places. Please wear masks and socks so you can join in the fun and walk all over Montana. Attendance will be limited, so be sure to come early!
