The Bigfork branch of Flathead County Library will be closed for a month while staff move into their new Bridge Street building.  

A release from Flathead County Library on Monday said the Bigfork branch, currently located inside the Bigfork Art and Cultural Center, will be closed starting July 6.   

At a recent Flathead County Library Board meeting, trustees approved a closure for the branch that will run until Aug. 6. Library Director Teri Dugan said the next four weeks will be busy for staff as they move materials and equipment into the new library building.   

The last day to pick up holds or return library books at the current Bigfork library location is July 5. After that date, patrons can pick up holds at other Flathead County library locations until the new Bigfork library opens.  

The Bigfork branch will reopen in August at the newly remodeled building located at 186 Bridge St.   

Officials encouraged library patrons to keep tabs on the Flathead County Library website at and the library’s social media accounts for updates on a grand opening celebration.
