Blaine County Library


June 20, 2018

The Blaine County Summer Reading program visited the Blaine County Museum last week.

The Blaine County Library Board of Trustees will hold their regular monthly meeting Friday June 22, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. in the library meeting room.

New movies available this week include two Hallmark movies, Darrow & Darrow and A Country Wedding. Other movies ready to go are Tomb Raider, I Can Only Imagine and The LEGO Ninjago Movie.

We have two non-fiction books ready for checkout this week. "Montana Women from the Ground Up" by Kristine Ellis, is a compilation of oral histories from Broadwater and Glacier County Conservation Districts. "The Sun Does Shine: How I Found Life and Freedom on Death Row" by Anthony Ray Hinton is the 2018 Oprah book club selection. If you are looking for suspense, this is your lucky week. "The Moscow Deception" by Karen Robards is book 2 in The Guardian series. "The Woman in the Woods" by John Connolly is a gripping thriller starring Private Investigator Charlie Parker. When the body of a woman-who apparently died in childbirth-is discovered, Parker is hired to track down both her identity and her missing child. America's first line of defense-Brad McLanahan and the heroes of the Iron Wolf Squadron-must counter a dangerous Russian strike from within the homeland in "The Moscow Offensive" by Dale Brown. "The Crooked Staircase" by Dean Koontz is a Jane Hawk novel.

If you are planning a road trip be sure to stop in and get some audio books to make the trip more enjoyable. We also offer downloadable audio and eBooks through MontanaLibrary2Go. You can find a link on our website or come into the library and we can get you started with downloadable content.

There is still plenty of time to get your kids signed up to participate in the Summer Reading Program. Children who join the summer reading program keep their minds active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and ready to succeed. For every two hours read, kids will be able to enter their name into our Summer Reading prize drawings. There will also be small prizes awarded for every two-hour entry. Pre-readers are encouraged to participate by having someone read to them. We have computers available for taking Accelerated Reader tests, so kids will be able to get a head start on AR points for the fall. Zurich students are now able to take AR tests at the library during the summer.

Our summer programs begin after Loaves & Fishes each day. "Tad the Lost Explorer and the Secret of King Midas" will be the movie Monday June 25th. It is rated PG and running time is 85 minutes. Summer Storytime for kids ages 5 and under is Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. and runs approximately 30 minutes. The Summer Storytime program is tailored to the needs and interests of a younger age group and is a great opportunity for your younger children to get involved with our Summer Library activities. Each week we read stories, sing songs, and make crafts. There is a Summer Library Program Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. Each program will last around 45 to 60 minutes. There will be stories, games, crafts, and treats each week. Wednesday afternoon is LEGO Club from 1:30-2:30 p.m. for kids K through 6. Younger kids are welcome to attend with adult supervision. Thursday Middle School Hangout is from 1:30-2:30 p.m. This program is for kids going into grades 6 through 8.
