Community Resources

Mental Health Coordinator

Ashley Hammond is Boise Public Library’s mental health coordinator. She provides support, help and guidance to get people connected to services and resources in our community.

Ashley helps residents in the community connect with resources such as housing or shelter referrals, utility relief, navigating government benefits, and more.

Ashley’s office is on the first floor of the Main Library. Summer office hours are 10 a.m. to noon, Monday, Tuesday and Friday. She can be reached at ahammond@cityofboise.org or (208) 972-8216.

Resource Pop-ups

The Library works with several organizations to host pop-ups that provide access to community resources and services. Pop-ups allow for organizations to connect with community members inside the Library.

Lawyers in the Library

The Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program (IVLP) provides a safety net for low-income individuals and families in Idaho who require civil legal services and cannot afford to pay for them. IVLP recruits attorneys from local communities who volunteer their time and expertise to assist those in need. IVLP’s free legal clinics are an opportunity to receive advice and counsel on your civil legal matter.

This clinic is held at the Main Library every 1st Tuesday, and you must be registered to attend. Register online at this link.

Outreach Resource Pop-up

Our Path Home Outreach provides services to those experiencing homelessness most Wednesdays at one of our Library locations (see schedule below). Outreach Specialists are available to assist with housing assessments, referrals to services and resources, brief case management and problem solving, and general Q&A.
