Historical photos of Nezperce
These pictures, as well as a number of other pictures from area residents, have been loaned to the Friends for reproduction. Thanks to a grant from the Idaho Humanities Council, the pictures were framed and are now on display in our library along the back wall.
Also, in display cases underneath these pictures are numerous World War II items that are on loan from community members.
For information regarding the use/rental of the community meeting room, please contact the City Clerk at Nezperce City Hall (502 5th Ave), call (208) 937-1021 or email the City of Nezperce at Clerk@CityOfNezperce.com.
The City Council has put together a rental agreement/policy to cover the use of the Community Room. This a truly wonderful meeting place for all who may wish to use it for any number of activities.

This activity time is geared for the very young, but all ages are welcome. Stories, songs and activities will allow for the energy of this younger, wiggly age group, and we will have lots of fun playing with others. Don’t worry if your child has a tough time sitting still for a long period of time. We will all be up and moving around throughout the time, so everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate.
Meet here on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m.
Jan. 9 | Feb. 12* | March 13 | April 10 | May 8
This is a cozy time to gather around the fire and visit while we enjoy each other’s interests. Each month a member will do a demonstration on a project of personal interest. All members are welcome to bring handwork to work on, but everyone is welcome with or without a project. Members enjoy sharing and showing completed or in-progress projects with one another. Each month we will also discuss a novel with a fiber or folk arts related theme. We will have each month’s title available at the library for interested members to check out.

Feb. 27 - Josephine Baker's Last Dance by Sherry Jones
From the author of The Jewel of Medina, a moving and insightful novel based on the life of legendary performer and activist Josephine Baker, perfect for fans of The Paris Wife and Hidden Figures.
Discover the fascinating and singular life story of Josephine Baker—actress, singer, dancer, Civil Rights activist, member of the French Resistance during WWII, and a woman dedicated to erasing prejudice and creating a more equitable world—in Josephine Baker’s Last Dance.
In this illuminating biographical novel, Sherry Jones brings to life Josephine's early years in servitude and poverty in America, her rise to fame as a showgirl in her famous banana skirt, her activism against discrimination, and her many loves and losses. From 1920s Paris to 1960s Washington, to her final, triumphant performance, one of the most extraordinary lives of the twentieth century comes to stunning life on the page.
With intimate prose and comprehensive research, Sherry Jones brings this remarkable and compelling public figure into focus for the first time in a joyous celebration of a life lived in technicolor, a powerful woman who continues to inspire today.
