Golf tourney to benefit library

The North Valley Public Library Foundation is sponsoring “Birdies for Books”, a golf tournament to benefit the north Valley Public Library. 

Birdies for Books will be held on Saturday, August 24 at the Whitetail Golf Course, located within the Lee Metcalf Wildlife Refuge at 4925 Wildfowl Lane, Stevensville. 

The Foundation is registering 18 teams for a fee of $150 per team. You can email Amy Horlacher at if you are interested in registering.

Team check-in is at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Awards and lunch will follow the 9-hole scramble.  

First place prize is $150.00; Second place is a golf swag. Prizes will also be awarded for Hole in One, Longest Putt, Longest Drive, and Closest to the Pin.

A Silent Auction with great items will also be set up for bidding during the tournament.  

The library, located at 208 Main Street, Stevensville, provides books, e-books and audiobooks as well as DVDs and CDs. Computer access is available for patrons as well as ‘wifi’ for those with their own laptops. Through the Montana Shared Catalog, patrons can access materials from any partner library across the state, while interlibrary loan makes materials not owned by the library or its partners available for a small fee. The Montana Room features books and materials specific to Montana, its history, lore, and environment. The library even owns a telescope that you can borrow for star gazing with family and friends!

In addition to materials, the library offers a gamut of ongoing and special programs for children, youth and adults. The Community Room, where many programs are held, is also available at no charge for meetings and community events.
