The board members and staff from ImagineIF Libraries will be on hand in Bigfork on Monday, July 13 to discuss community ideas for a new library for the village.
According to the ImagineIF 2014 Facilities Master Plan, the Bigfork community needs a 6,200-square-foot library to serve the greater Bigfork area for the next 20 years. The current library in Bigfork, called ImagineIF Bigfork, is 1,440 square feet.
To facilitate a library with the size called for in Facilities Master Plan, the building would need to be located on at least half an acre, or ideally three-quarters of an acre to allow for parking and landscaping.
The library’s administration is asking the community to help figure out where a new library should go in Bigfork.
The meeting will be at the Community United Methodist Church, starting at 5 p.m. and running until 6:30 p.m. Anyone with questions or comments can send them to ImagineIF Libraries Director Kim Crowley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 406-758-5826.
