Area residents, including Hi-Line high school students, are welcome
and encouraged to use the Vande Bogart Library facility. Hi-Line elementary
and junior high school students are also welcome when accompanied by a
parent or responsible adult.
The Vande Bogart Library endeavors to act as a back up agency in support
of both Hi-Line schools and public libraries. The local librarian can function
in a liaison capacity.
