POLSON — Happy “Library Lovers Month!” To celebrate this and “I Love to Read Month” we are offering a selection of children’s’ books to be adopted by you. A $15 donation to the library purchases a book for our collection. A special plaque will be placed in the book acknowledging its adoption. Stop in soon – books are going fast.

On Friday, February 16 at 1 p.m. in the Library meeting room, the Friends of the Library will hold its first meeting with the new Directors. If you have any interest in being on the Friends of the Library Board of Directors or would like to be part of the Friends of the Library group, please join us. The Friends of the Library is a great support to the North Lake County Public Library District and helps us with collection funding, programming and more.

On Thursday, February 22 we will celebrate “Digital Learning Day” from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Technology specialist Heather will demonstrate some of our digital resources. While the world watches the Winter Olympics, we will demonstrate our global digital resources, including World Book, A to Z World Food, and world music from Freegal. Join us for learning and light refreshments from around the world.

The Federal tax forms and booklets are starting to arrive. We will have them available through tax season or as long as they last. The State of Montana did not print any booklets or forms this year. You can find what you need online at or E-File for free through one of the free e-filing options found on that webpage.

On Thursday, March 1 at 7 p.m., please join us in the library meeting room for a presentation by former KPAX reporter Ian Marquand. For 35 years, Montana has enjoyed a "sister state" relationship with the prefecture of Kumamoto, Japan. Few Montanans know Kumamoto as well as award-winning journalist and Japan Friendship Club President Ian Marquand. Join Ian as he shares the special character of Kumamoto--its connection with former Ambassador Mike Mansfield, its natural beauty, its cultural heritage and its charming modern mascot, Kumamon. He'll also celebrate the unique friendship Kumamoto offers to Montanans.

The Library is open Monday through Thursday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We will be closed Monday, February 19 for Presidents’ Day. Visit our website and our Facebook page for updates on the happenings at the Library.
