Library Happenings

This view of Lewistown shows construction of the Knerr-Tubb building at 116 W. Main (now Wier’s furniture store) in 1909. Near it is the Elkhorn Stable owned by Jess Pinkley. On the left side is the Green Building built in 1909. The Fergus County Courthouse is seen in the background.

Summer reading program
The Summer Reading Program at the Library kicked off the first week of June. Participants were able to register and jump right in doing the puzzles, quizzes, programming, reading and the ever-popular scavenger hunt. So far, we are having record-breaking participation this year with over 200 kids and 100 adults signed up just in the first week.
Participants are able to sign up anytime during the summer and the program runs through Saturday, August 6. Thanks again to our many sponsors who make our programming possible.

Save the date
