  • It is strongly suggested, but not required, that all persons over the age of 3 wear a mask during programs and while in the library.
  • Class sizes are limited and spots are given on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • If you or your child are not feeling well, please don’t attend our programs or visit the library.
  • Not all programs are being offered at this time.
  • Practice social distancing. 
  • Program schedules may change at any time.

Thank you for your cooperation and participation!

A kindergarten readiness program designed for preschoolers that will attend school in the fall of 2021. This is a parent (or adult caregiver)/child class, with one-hour sessions designed to work on skills that will help a child get ready for school through interactive play, hands-on activities, and focused instruction for parents. 

The current session of Kinder-Set Go! is full. Registration for the 2021-2022 school year begins in June. 
For more details contact Alaina at (208) 922-1025.

Mini Monets LogoMini Monets

This program will resume in the fall
For children ages 3-6 and their caregiver

Each session of Mini Monets begins with a story followed by an art project that encourages kids to create with and explore different mediums and tools.
Sessions last 15-30 minutes depending on the project. If the project needs to dry it will be kept at the library until the next time the child attends a Mini Monets session. 

Limited to 16 families on a first-come, first-served basis. 
Masks are required during programs for everyone ages 3 and up. 
Arrive early, as no one will be permitted once the class has started.


Storytime Music & Movement LogoStorytime/Music & Movement

This program will resume in the fall
For children ages 3-6 and their adult caregiver, however, all ages are welcome

We are combining two of our favorite programs into one fun-filled half-hour program with Storytime activities and Music & Movement singing and dancing!
The program begins with Storytime where at least 2 books are read and a take-home craft is offered. Storytime lasts about 15 minutes. As soon as Storytime is over, we immediately transition into Music & Movement. Participants are given a bag with instruments that are used for the class (these instruments are sanitized after the program). The class leader uses songs that encourage both fine and gross motor skills. Caregivers are encouraged and expected to participate with the child. 

Masks are required during programs for everyone ages 3 and up.
No registration is required.
To maintain social distancing, class size is limited and spots will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis.
