Blackfoot Public Library

Blackfoot Public Library The time of the shushing librarian is gone. The Blackfoot Library is a vibrant and welcoming resource to the Blackfoot community and surrounding areas.
(25)

As you visit public libraries in this day and age you will find that the time of the shushing librarian is gone. Libraries are vibrant, welcoming and dynamic entities that constantly evolve to meet the current and future needs of the public. We will always strive to do our best to meet those needs. We welcome suggestions on how we can improve our service. Our staff has many years of experience working in libraries and is here to serve you. The Blackfoot Public Library has been providing library service to the Blackfoot area since 1915. Conveniently located in downtown Blackfoot on North Broadway next to the Post Office, the Library is on the ground floor of the City Building. In addition to the City of Blackfoot, our service area includes a library district that covers the Groveland, Rose, and Wapello areas. Residents of all these areas can obtain library cards free of charge. We also have a reciprocal agreement with other libraries in Bingham County, which means that County residents can obtain a Blackfoot Public Library card once they have a card from their "home" library.

Does Your Library Have a Library Telescope Program? A Library Telescope is a telescope owned by a library that can be borrowed just like a book. Usually it’s a modified Orion 4.5” StarBlast Reflector Telescope. What better way to bring astronomy to the youth of today, than to give them access to a quality telescope? Having a parent, or other adult, borrow the telescope and amaze a child with views of the Moon or a planet, could make a lasting impression. Maybe even lead to a career in astronomy or some other science. Hundreds of libraries across the United States have Library Telescope Programs that have been remarkably successful. A library can get a telescope program going for under $400. The telescope is modified in various ways so it is less likely to be damaged and parts are less likely to be lost. Shouldn’t your library have a Library Telescope Program? For more information see www.LibraryTelescope.org and page: Library Telescope.
Volunteers will show up at the Library tomorrow from 3 to 5 p. m. to work on making mats for the homeless. The Library has been so nice to let us do that. THANKS
