There was a great article in today’s Ravalli Republic about our new program, the North Valley Storyline. You can read the article here.
We’re very excited about this new early literacy outreach program. For now, Kim is using her personal car to visit daycare centers in Stevensville and Florence, but the library’s ultimate goal is to purchase a vehicle to use in the project.
The Storyline has been funded entirely with donations and grant funds so far. The NVPL Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, is accepting donations to keep the Storyline running long into the future.
If you’d like more information, contact Kim, Caitlin or Desiree at 777-5061.
The internet is a wonderful place for children to explore, but it can also pose safety risks. Learn how to balance enjoyment and safety for your children in this informative and free Thursday Tech Training. Join our tech training specialist in this special evening session for parents from 5:00-7:00 PM this Thursday, May 9. Please call the library to register. (406)777-5061.
Communities Matter @ your Library during National Library Week. Stop by NVPL this week and find out how the library supports your community. Today, we will be serving coffee and treats from local businesses. Tomorrow, grab a packet of seeds from the Stevensville Community Garden. Bring your little one to an engaging storytime (Tuesday & Wednesday @ 10:30) or practice your Spanish language skills at our weekly Spanish Conversation Group (Wednesday @ 6:00). All week, let us know how the library can improve this community and enter your name for tickets to the upcoming production of Wizard of Oz at the Stevensville Community Playhouse or a gift certificate to area businesses. We hope to see you at the library!
The Herb Chat scheduled for today at 12:00 has been cancelled. Sincere apologies from your library and the Outlaw Herbalist. Check back next month on Tuesday, April 9 at 12:00 for a herb seed swap. Just in time for spring!

We’re celebrating all things Irish this month, at the library! Stop in at 12:00 today to view a free film steeped in Irish folklore. A 10 year old girl is sent to live with her grandparents in a small fishing village in Donegal, Ireland and learns the legends of her ancestors. This is a great film for the entire family. Contact the library for title information at 777-5061.
The snow is falling and it feels like winter once again. What better time to bring your family to the library to learn how animals live in the cold and snowy Montana winters. In collaboration with Ranger Bob Danley from Lee Metcalf, the Montana Natural History Museum and the Teller Wildlife Refuge, the library will host enriching activity stations such as animal track mysteries and winter poem writing. Make a snow globe to take home! This event is free and all ages are welcome to participate. Tonight from 5:00-6:30 PM in the community room.
