Love Your Library Month 

This September, we will celebrate our sixth annual Love Your Library campaign! All donations made to Northern Tier Library during the month of September will receive a prorated match from the Buncher Foundation. Additionally, we will be hosting a number of special programs in order to raise funds for the library. Donations are also welcome and can be made either at the library itself or through online avenues which can be found on this page:

Love Your Library Book Sale 

We will be holding a Used Book Sale during the month of September for the Love Your Library campaign! Please come in and take a look—and remember, all book sale proceeds boost our Love Your Library donation total! Items for sale will be in the main part of the library and the sale will last for the entire month of September.  

American Girl Doll Tea Party 

Let’s get together for a mommy-and-me American Girl doll tea party! Come dressed in your tea party best and bring your doll on Saturday, September 17 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. No worries if you don’t have a doll, the library has a collection of them to keep you company (and can then be checked out!) Learn how to make cucumber sandwiches and a good cup of tea—the library will provide snacks and other beverages too. There is a $5 fee per person for this program that will be donated to the library. Advance registration is required, and payment must be made upon registration.

Fly Tying Event 

A quiet morning, a light mist hovers over the river, a zen-like calmness washes over you as you cast your fly out… YOUR fly, the one you tied at Northern Tier Library. Join Northern Tier Library and Public Lands on Wednesday, September 14 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM to learn how to tie two classic flies, the green weenie and the foam ant. Learn some basic fly tying techniques that can be applied to your future flying endeavors. Materials and equipment will be provided via a generous sponsorship by Public Lands. No experience necessary. There is a fee of $5 to be donated to the library. All donations during the month of September will receive a prorated match from the Buncher Foundation during Love Your Library month. Registration is required to account for materials and space is limited, so sign up early!
