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.
Carrie Wahl of Nezperce and her sister-in-law, Jennifer Fowler of Orofino, have together written Pieces of the Puzzle, book one of the TIMEKEEPERS series.
Request a copy of the book through VALNet here.

Story hours will be packed with stories, games, treats, crafts and fun for all ages—all with the view in mind of “building a better world”. Please have an adult attend with pre-school and kindergarten children. Bring your reading logs with your recorded reading for the past week and we will enter you in the weekly drawing for prizes. Everyone who attends the first story hour session will be eligible for that week’s drawing, but after that, make sure you bring your log! You may turn in your completed logs at the library by August 4, and that will qualify you for the drawing of the final Summer Reading Prizes.
For Teens and Adults! We will have Teen Reading Bingo and Adult Reading Bingo at the library this summer. Bingo cards will be available at the library after June 4. Each bingo enters you for an Amazon Gift Card drawing. Come and join the fun!!
Adult Reading Group, 7 p.m. May 30
May's selection is anything by Agatha Christie.
Search VALNet for her books here.
Who doesn't love a good mystery?
And what better mystery story to read than one the best-selling novelist and "Queen of Crime" Agatha Christie? Readers can choose any of the 66 novels Christie wrote or any of her plays or short stories.
Other options include biographies or autobiographies of Christie who, herself, perpetuated a mysterious disappearance for a time in 1926.
Readers are invited to gather at the library to discuss her work and, as always, other topics that happen to come up. Interested persons don't even have to have read a book to come enjoy the conversation.
Nezperce Friends of the Library are volunteers from the community who have come together to help with library activities, growth, fund raising and general support of the library. The Board of Directors include President Mike Wasko, Treasurer Mary Lou Puckett, Secretary Sandra Dulgar, Director Sue Justesen, Director Jeanne Wasko, Director Melodee Riggers, Director Dianne Freeman.
If you are interested in becoming a Friend of the Library or have any suggestions or ideas to further the Library's goals, please call or contact a board member or library staff.
One of our continuing fund raising activities for the Nezperce Community Library is the Family History Profiles. For a contribution of $1,000 you can submit pictures and a short write up about your family in the Nezperce area. The pictures will then be put together by members of the Friends, they will be framed and displayed in our History of Nezperce section.
