Bitterrroot Public Library Hamilton, Montana


Bitterroot Public Library wants your house.

Deception at the Bitterroot Public Library Hamilton Montana

In the last two editions of the Bitterroot Star, the Bitterroot Public library is claiming that they have funding "gaps" for their FALL FUNDING DRIVE. The only gap is the public misinformation about the Bitterroot Public Library budget.

Let me help you with that one.

In the 2009-2010 budget the Bitterroot Public Library had $500,000.00 US in the bank of your tax money. Apparently, this is not enough for a small one room library to operate with their $500,000 combined annual budget from Ravalli County and the magical unincorporated City of Hamilton. When the Bitterroot Public Library spends your tax dollars from the unincorporated City of Hamilton, MT and Ravalli County MT taxpayers purchases of books only amounts to 1 in 9 budget dollars.


The North Valley Library in Stevensville, MT has plans for expansion, has far superior community programs, staff, and operates on a fraction of the Bitterroot Public Library tax revenue (see link below for the North Valley Library). Moreover, The North Valley Library ACCEPTED the US President letter denied by the Bitterroot Public Library (link is below). Here is a PDF view of the remodel/expansion plans in Stevensville MT at the North Valley Library: (wait for upload)

Here is a vision, a snippet of life in Hamilton, MT site of the Bitterroot Public Library: Hamilton Montana Police more than willing to transfer expertise to the Bitterroot Public Library when asked.

No law matters when it comes to the Bitterroot Public Library

Pulled over for "Being in Wrong Lane"
[warning, gunfire, death of American by Hamilton Police]

The City of Hamilton is not lawfully incorporated, not historically either.
The Davis family has cause of action for WRONGFUL DEATH.

NOTE: an unincorporated city cannot have police, employees or a gov't

Now if anyone brings this up, beware of the 15 police officers who are far from imaginary.


Hamilton Montana is a community with many older seniors, so why shouldn't the Bitterroot Public Library seek those estates for use of their budget? How would the public know that the Bitterroot Public Library actually have a giant surplus? It is called deception at best, and fraud is not too far off.

In the 2009-2010 budget, 63% of the funds went to pay themselves (Administrative Costs). Lets compare the Bitterroot Public Library with the North Valley Library, a bigger, more community minded outreach, AND had plans to expand, with ACTUAL GAPS in their budget.

The North Valley Library is a great organization. Their volunteers laugh, are fun to talk to, and are helpful. Please give to the Stevensville Library if you have money to give. They operate a much better library with MUCH LESS tax revenue (or deception).

It is proof that the Bitterroot Public Library feels money from the public is theirs to spend, at their desire, and ask for more in Hamilton Montana. The Bitterroot Public library has another secret: Hamilton Montana taxpayers have footed a court bill for an estimated $250,000 for removing privileges, charging crime for sitting on public property as the former director admitted no requests were made to leave the library (under oath) for any behavior issue in violation of their policies, or Montana Law [MCA 22-1-311] which states a "willful violation of the rules" is needed prior to removal from the library. Many people in Hamilton were removed outside of this policy.

It is estimated that the Bitterroot Public Library has removed at least 10 patrons rights to enter the library, and the details are not known beyond that.

What is known is that the Bitteroot Public Library wants more of your gifts, be it your house or your hard earned money when they mis-use public funds as they violate Montana law, and patrons rights.

An upshot of the "Ban" from the Bitterroot Public Library has been the "Library Thing" website with a revolving readership of 3Million readers about the Bitterroot Public Library. The other upshot is the letter to the first African-American US President asking for CIVIL RIGHTS within the FIRST paragraph; the Montana US President letter has had more than 10 million confirmed views.
Read the 10 page letter banned from the Bitterrooot Public Library in 2009:

The Bitterroot Public Library pays $1 per year for their space to the City of Hamilton. They want more from you, although you pay for their mistakes, as improper use of public funds is the #1 criminal priority of the FBI although no one is seemingly breaking a sweat at the US Dept. of Justice.
UPDATE: in 2014 the FBI are investigating Ravalli Co. Montana.

While the public, and The Bitterroot Star's Michael Howell go ballistic over spending $250,000 of public money for Geoff Mahar's retirement at the Ravalli County Attorney Office, no one is making a peep over the misuse of Hamilton Taxpayer funds to the same sum to improperly benefit the Bitterroot Public Library in Hamilton Montana.

here is the Library Thing webpage about the Bitterroot Public Library: 3 Million hits on one site.

About 6 months ago, this blog network encouraged the boycott of the Bitterroot Public Library and a link to the reasons should make it very clear that something is very wrong in Hamilton Montana.

It just seems intuitive to give to a library. The Bitterroot Public Library is not an ordinary library. It has lost a director, and the state director for protecting the Bitterroot Public Library in Hamilton Montana. A library is for the public, to discuss ideas, obtain reading material, and congregate outside to enjoy peace. Peace is not what is at hand at 306 State Street in Hamilton Montana, site of the Bitterroot Public Library.

Please guard your finances from the Bitterroot Public Library. They have a right to ask you for money, but you have a right to know how public funding is being spent, or not being spent.

NOTE: The Bitterroot Public Library, other than losing 90% of its public funding cites Montana Law Title 22 section 311 in its policy, yet cant have a tiered approach to TAKING AWAY LIBRARY RIGHTS.  A person must be willfully violating the rules, and must understand those rules.  So the Bitterroot Public Library cannot just take away rights for a day, a week or a month.  The collective board of the library must VOTE to remove priviliges.  I bet they regret taking my rights, without telling me to leave or indicating what I did wrong.


  1. The Bitterroot Public Library, and Jim Messina have asked Yahoo, Google to suppress views of the Montana US President letter. Messina lunches with Google CEO in Chicago for favors. The Montana US President letter has been banned from the Bitterrooot Public Library Hamilton MT in 2009 in violation of US due process, liberty.

  2. Proud to have found in local government budgets that this library has lost $510,000/yr and almost $2 million since deciding Montana library law didnt matter. With 3,000 people per month looking at Montana and BPL abuses, it just doesnt pay to abuse your own taxpayers.
