This fundraiser benefits the Lewistown Public Library’s Summer Reading Program and has become a fun event to look forward to during those cold winter months. Get on your thinking caps and get those competitive spirits flowing.

Electronic Devices and MontanaLibrary2Go
If you are a recipient of a new electronic device (MP3 player, tablet, or e-reader) and want to use MontanaLibrary2Go, please be prepared with the following before seeking a library staff person’s help: Have the device registered in your name and know any passwords needed for downloading apps. Have a functioning email address. Know how to navigate around on the device and be sure batteries are fully charged. If the device cannot download apps, you will need a personal computer with internet access and a USB cable in-order to download software and e-materials. We look forward to assisting you.
