Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving will result in closures for the Coeur d’Alene Public and Lake City Public libraries during November and will also impact the meetings for the Friends of the Library and the Library Board of Trustees.

The main library will be closed Friday and Saturday, Nov. 10 and 11, for Veterans Day and Thursday and Friday, Nov. 23 and 24, for Thanksgiving. The Lake City library in the high school on Ramsey Road will be closed Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 22 and 23.

Except for the LEGO Club at Lake City Tuesday, Nov. 21, at 4 p.m., there will be no children’s programs during the week of Nov. 19-25.

Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the Friends of the Library will conduct a combined November-December meeting on Dec. 12 at 10:30 a.m. The Library Board will also meet Wednesday, Dec. 13, at 4 p.m. Both meetings are open to the public.

Pageturners Library Book Club, normally meeting the fourth Wednesday of the month, will be held on Nov. 29 at 10:15 a.m. Inland Northwest Milestones with Robert Singletary – normally offered the fourth Thursday of the month – will be presented on Nov. 30 at 7 p.m.

When the library is closed many services are available through the website, Patrons can access their library records and place holds; download e-books through the OverDrive system and free music from Freegal; and utilize numerous online resources through the library databases.

Most online resources do require a user name and password. Obtain these before you need them by calling or visiting the library during open hours.

Patrons who need accommodation to participate in library programs or services are asked to contact the staff prior to the activity by calling 208-769-2315.
