The library is open with restrictions

Same-Day Hold Alerts

Updated October 30 — Patrons, if you are signed up for hold alerts, please read this notice:

Earlier this year as we adjusted to changes created by the pandemic, the library was sending hold alerts a week before your holds were ready for checkout. The timing of those alerts has been changed. Now, the alert will not come until the holds have passed through quarantine and are ready for checkout. When you receive the alert, you may come that same day to get your holds.

To view and manage our holds, sign into your library account or call 208-612-8460.

Updated October 30, 2020 — All of our buildings are open for regular business hours. For masks and social distancing requirements, please follow the instructions on the local public health website.
