The Friends of the Lewistown Public Library
The Friends of the Lewistown Public Library are a group of dedicated supporters helping the Lewistown Public Library be the very best that it can be. Our Library is funded by the City and Fergus county; however the budget is a barebones budget without room for unexpected repairs or expenses. Our Friends try to help out when an unexpected or unbudgeted need occurs. For example, in 2018 the original historic doors to the original library building were in great disrepair and there wasn’t a budget item to cover the expense of restoring these historic doors. The Friends paid to have the doors restored. The bathroom in the upstairs meeting room wasn’t handicapped accessible, the flooring needed replacing but again no money in the budget so the Friends remodeled and ensured the bathroom met the standards. Landscaping around the Library was dying (except for the weeds) so the Friends paid to have the dead plants and bushes removed and new hardscape installed as well as maintenance plants and grasses planted. Where ever there is a need not covered by the budget, the Friends try to meet that need as requested by the Library Director.
Lewistown Public Library
Built as a Carnegie Library in 1905, the Lewistown Public Library provides the most modern and up to date information access facility in the county. Located across from the Fergus County Courthouse on Main Street, the library has both the feeling of the old and the wonder of the new.
Lewistown Art Center
The Lewistown Art Center promotes and provides engaged access to the arts, arts education, and cultural experiences in Central Montana. This includes Hands on Art (a 3-day-a-week after-school program), Youth Programming in the Summer, Adult Social Nights, and cultural events like monthly gallery receptions (First Friday of the month!), Shakespeare in the Park, WinterSongs, and so much more!
Lewistown Community Labyrinth Garden
The public garden is for everyone to visit a seven-circuit flower maze. A labyrinth is an ancient symbol that relates to wholeness. It combines the imagery of the circle and the spiral into a meandering but purposeful path. The Labyrinth represents a journey to our own center and back again out into the world.
