Library Seeks Public Input on New Bigfork Facility

Library’s administration is asking the community to help figure out where a new library should go in Bigfork

By Beacon Staff

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 kcrowley@imagineiflibraries.org or 406-758-5826.
