- In the Stacks is the Library’s podcast. Episode #11 of In the Stacks “Campfire Tales”, we finally dive into some spooky campfire stories of wilderness legends, a haunted hotel, a sinister cat, and more, just in time for camping season. The stories we share in this episode are scary, so if you are sensitive to that or have children listening, please take care of yourself accordingly. Subscribe to In the Stacks on Spotify, Google, and all other major podcast platforms.
- Reading Like Cats and Dogs is a summer reading and friendly competition to determine the library pet of the year. To participate, read a book about (or mentions) a dog or a cat and vote accordingly. Submit a vote by completing a book title slip – one vote per book per patron. The animal with the overall votes will determine the library pet of the year. A drawing will take place and a winner will be drawn for the prize tote. (Prize totes are more geared to adult interests). Entries accepted through Saturday, August 14.
The mission of the Lewistown Public Library is to provide free and equal access to quality materials and services which fulfill the educational, informational, cultural, and recreational needs of the entire community. Thank you for your patronage.
