The Book Challenge for March is read the first book in a trilogy. Stop by and we can help find a selection for you.

Remember to contact the library if you have completed the February challenge so your name can be entered to win a gift certificate from a local business. I hope you are keeping up with the 2019 Reading Challenge to read 52 (or more!) books this year.

The Book Club is reminded to pick up the new selection “Empty Mansions” by Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell, Jr. the week of March 11-15. The first discussion will be March 18, 4 P.M. in the library meeting room.

During the month of March we are again holding our “Buy a Bag O’Books” sale. You may by a grocery sack full of used books from the Reading Room for just one dollar!

The next Learn at the Library program will be held March 26, 7 P.M. This presentation “How Gambling Affects Families” will be given by Melanie Sorensen, Licensed Addiction Counselor Candidate for the State of Montana.

The program was originally scheduled in January.

The Summer Reading Program will be here before we know it. The theme this year is “A Universe of Stories.” We have a list children’s books we would like to purchase especially for summer reading. If you would like to make a donation to the library to purchase one or more of these books we would greatly appreciate it. Contact the library for more information.
