Federal Depository Collection

Explore the Federal Depository Library

FDLPlogo.jpgThe Federal Depository Library Program partners with libraries nationwide to provide the American public with free and equal access to government information. Boise Public Library began its participation in the program in 1929 and continues as the only public library in Idaho designated as a depository library. Our collection boasts over 20,000 print and electronic documents and serves the greater Treasure Valley.  

The Federal Depository Library Program was established by Congress in 1895. The program is administered by the U.S. Government Publishing Office, which disseminates Federal Government information products to depository libraries located throughout the U.S. and its territories.    

An informative and fun website designed to encourage kids to learn about the Federal Government. The Government Printing Office has also designed the site to be useful to parents and educators looking for tools to help kids learn more.
The U.S Government Publishing Office (GPO) provides publishing and dissemination services for the official and authentic government publications to Congress, Federal agencies, Federal depository libraries, and the American public.
As the U.S. government's official web portal, USA.gov makes it easy for the public to get U.S. government information and services on the web.
