An open house is planned to introduce a new infant/toddler care center that will open June 1 in downtown Missoula.

The open house, which will give people a chance to see The Children's Center Too and meet the director and caregivers, will be held Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m.

An extension of The Children's Center, 236 E. Spruce St., the new center will serve children ages 6 weeks to 3 years old from 7:30 am. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Located at 430 W. Pine St., with the entrance facing Owen Street, the center will participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program.

Court Appointed Special Advocates of Missoula, will begin pre-service training for new CASA volunteers on June 19.

The three weeks of training will be Tuesday and Thursday evenings and the weekend of June 23-24.

CASA volunteers advocate for the best interests of abused and neglected children involved with the 4th Judicial District Court.

A 50-50 matching donation has enabled the Friends of the Kohrs Library in Deer Lodge to buy items for the library.

The Microsoft Giving Campaign Program and the family of Michael J. Smith and Colleen Kelley have donated a gift that eventually will total more than $3,000 with matching donations.

Smith and Kelley graduated from Powell County High School in 1988 and 1987, respectively. They now live in Bellevue, Wash., and Smith is employed by Microsoft Corp.

The gift, in combination with money earned by the Friends of the Library through used book sales and a speaker's program donation box, has allowed the group to buy two new upholstered chairs for patron comfort in the library's reading room, a magazine/brochure rack in the entryway, assorted new books and closet shelving.

For more information about the Friends of the Kohrs Library, call Lee Silliman, its president, at 846-1561.
