The Cascade Public Library will be closed
through April 18 while restoration work is being done to dry our books and repair our building which suffered heavy smoke and water damage from a fire that burned down the building near ours.
The Cascade Public Library does not have an updated reopen date. Continued work to repair our building is being done, paint and carpet are next on the list. Once the repairs have been completed the library staff will begin putting the library back in working order.
Despite the closure, online services are still available for you to check out e-books through “Libby.” If you need assistance, please call 208-382-4757 or email [email protected]
You can also still access the library’s free Wi-Fi by parking near the “Recycled Book” next door to the library. (Password: library1)
The library board is working with the City of Cascade to try to establish temporary space in town to provide services such as, public computers, photo copying, book returns, and assistance in using online book check-out. We thank you for your patience while we try to make this happen. Watch this space for updates.
Questions and Answers:
- Where can I return my books?
Please return your library books to Cascade City Hall 105 South Main ST. M – F, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- When will the bookstore next to the library open?
The Friends of the Cascade Library operates the “Recycled Book.” It has reopened!!!
- What about the Library staff?
The library is currently without a director, but the job will be posted soon. In the meantime, part-time staff are working remotely and the City is utilizing some staff to assist with the workload at City Hall while the library is closed.
- Will there be a Summer Reading Program?
Yes! Thanks to our collaboration again this year with Horizon’s Lifestyle and Education Team, the Library will be offering a Summer Reading Program. Stay tuned in the weeks ahead for information and how to enroll your young readers.
- How can I help the Library during this time?
The best way to help the library is to donate to The Friends of the Cascade Library at PO Box 10 Cascade, ID 83611. Any amount is sincerely appreciated and will help immensely as we restore the library. Although we hope that insurance will cover all the costs to repair the building, we anticipate there will be gaps and support from the community will be needed.
If you have further questions or need assistance, please call 208-382-4757 or email [email protected] As staff are working part-time, please note that it may take 24 hours for a response.
