Library, Mountain West team up on travel

Print Article

The Library is teaming up with Mountain West Bank to tempt you to travel. As the Ponderay branch’s organization of the month, we will have a travel-themed display set up throughout the month of May — because, what better way to travel than through a book?

When Mountain West’s Ponderay branch manager Judy Baird contacted us, she said, “We knew we were doing a travel theme in May and I immediately thought of The Library. Growing up, I could travel anywhere through the adventures I experienced in books.”

Our travel-themed display will be up all month, but we will be there to help the bank ride their travel theme in a few different ways today, Friday, May 3. At 10:30 a.m., library volunteer Marie will be taking students on a trip with a special travel story time. From noon to 1 p.m. you can sign up for a library card and learn about the perks of being a card holder at our staffed sign-up table. Then, from 2:30 to 4 p.m. you can jump on the Bookmobile and browse books, movies, music, and more.

Take a trip to the Mountain West Bank Ponderay branch today.
