Kudos to the Library's Friends Group
Our Friends group raised over $27,000 at its book sale in late October. That's especially impressive when you think about how many books and magazines make up that number! Our thanks to all of the hard-working Friends volunteers who made it happen, and to the many members of the community who donated their books and/or came to the sale! The Friends support many special programs and projects that we could not offer otherwise (or offer as well), ranging from Summer Reading and Library Comic Con to furniture for reading areas and 3D printers to opening day collections for new branches.

Dinner & a Book, Idaho Family Reading Week
Reading together is a great way for parents and children to share an activity while helping the child build reading and verbal skills. Join us in celebrating Idaho Family Reading Week at Dinner & a Book - plan on lots of fun, Flying Pie pizza, and ice cream, plus stories for the kids. This is the 12th year that our good friends at Flying Pie Pizzaria and our marvelous Friends group have co-sponsored Dinner & a Book! This year, we'll be holding it at all four libraries. Due to limited seating, reservations are required.
Get Yours, and Give One to a Friend!
