POLSON — September is Library Card Sign-up Month. There is nothing more empowering than getting your own library card. It gives you access to technology, resources, and services to pursue your passions and dreams. If you don’t have a library card, stop in today and sign up. It’s free.

We are so excited to announce the addition of a new self-service Canon multifunction copy machine. We were able to purchase this machine with generous gifts and a grant from the Friends of the North Lake County Public Library, PayneWest Insurance and The Greater Polson Community Foundation. Library users can make black and white or color copies, print from their mobile devices, scan multi-page documents to an email address or a USB drive, and send faxes within the United States. While the machine is self-service, the library staff is always happy to help.

We are proud to announce participation in “September 11, 2001: The Day that Changed the World,” an exhibition that presents the history of 9/11, its origins, and its ongoing implications through the personal stories of those who witnessed and survived the attacks 20 years ago. Told across 14 posters, this exhibition includes archival photographs and images of artifacts from the Museum’s permanent collection. It is on display in the library entryway through the month of September. It was developed by the 9/11 Memorial & Museum and has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Democracy Demands Wisdom. We would like to thank Super 1 Foods for helping us get the posters printed.

Mother Goose programs are held each Monday at 9:15 a.m. in the library meeting room. These programs for babies, toddlers and their caregivers include stories, nursery rhymes and songs. This is a great opportunity for new parents to meet other parents in our community.

We still have life jackets available for loan until the weather turns or the lake level drops. Borrowers must be 18 or older and have a current library card in good standing. We have a small selection of sizes, and these are available for a 7-day checkout. 

The Library is open Monday – Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. with 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Wednesday and Friday reserved for those 65 and older or immunocompromised, please wear a mask during this hour; and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Curbside pickup is available for everyone during open hours. Please call us at 883-8225 or email us at polsoncl@polson.lib.mt.us with questions or to request curbside pickup.
