December has arrived! With the glow of twinkling lights on frosty nights and cozy glimmer of Christmas trees and candlelight indoors, it’s a magical month of the year. May it be filled with peace and happy memories for everyone. December is the month of holidays: of Christmas and New Year, of days spent with family, of cozy fireplaces and warm smiles. A great month to curl up with a good library book or to grab some books for family story time around the cheery fire.
…..So come see us and check out the new arrivals!

We are weeding the adult non-fiction section. We’ve added a bookcase of non-fiction “Last Chance” books for you to check out. Please come look it over, you may find a forgotten treasure! If you’d like to see it stay in the collection, check it out to keep it moving.

- Adult Book Club –Thursday, December 14 at 6pm. The December selection is Going Zero: A complex thriller written by a four-time Academy Award-nominated screenwriter, Anthony McCarten. Ten Americans have been carefully selected to Beta test a ground-breaking piece of spyware. For one contestant, an unassuming Boston librarian named Kaitlyn Day, the stakes are far higher than money, and her reasons for entering the test more personal than anyone imagines. When the timer hits zero, there will only be one winner… This well-written yarn proves that you don’t have to have a blood bath to have a breakneck, twisty, action-packed thriller.Call Dawn: 208-987-0652 or email [email protected] for more info.

We have a new selection of Large Print and CD Audio Books. Come and find a book!
Does your vision make traditional print a challenge for reading? Consider the Talking Book Service: This audio library book service from the Idaho State Library is completely free to people who have trouble reading traditional printed material due to visible impairment or a physical disability which contributes to a print disability. Those who are blind or who have perceptual or reading disabilities are eligible. This includes autism, dyslexia, inability to hold a book due to difficulties with hands or arms, and other conditions which make using a traditional book difficult. TBS provides the machine and audio book and/or magazine titles (selected by the user), mailed directly to their residence. Returning the materials is as simple as turning over the mailing card and putting the cartridge in the mail. There is no cost to the user for mailing. Please come in or contact us at the library and we will help you sign up for this awesome service!

We offer downloadable audio and E-books for our patron’s use through the Libby app. For those who have been using the OverDrive app to download these offerings, please note that the OverDrive app will no longer be in service as of May 1st.

TEEN Connection Kits- check these out!
From the Idaho Commission for Libraries we have received Teen Connection kits: these are take-home kits designed to provide everything needed to learn the targeted skills. We have a Bookmaking Kit which provides the opportunity to create a book or journal, with instructions and tools for book-binding; and a Make, Mend and Repair kit which offers instructions and tools to repair damaged clothing, broken appliances, and minor home repairs. These kits will be available for a 2-week check-out.
We love volunteers! Pulling or shelving books, creating displays, and assisting with cataloging and mending projects, leading or assisting with youth or adult programs, creating craft kits, or doing handyman help are all ways you can help make your library a great place for all. Volunteering is an excellent way to use your unique skills and learn more about how a library works. It also allows you to find some great books! Drop by and fill out a volunteer form and visit with Jenny about the special ways you can contribute to our wonderful library.
