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.
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 Lynette Schlader, 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.
We’re expanding our programs with the introduction of our
Learn & Play Time for Toddlers/Early Preschool!
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.

Adult and Teen Summer Reading: The Bingo cards were a great hit last summer, and we received many requests that we do it again. So we will! Complete a bingo then enter the drawing for a $25.00 Amazon card. For some, the bingo cards feel a bit ambitious, so we are brainstorming ideas so that we can offer and additional way to enter the drawings.
Jam Sessions at the Library in August: Mr. Campbell has offered to hold music jam sessions with instruments and sound equipment at the library (in the community room) during our open hours. Surfing theme/Campfire theme/Jazz them are some theme ideas he is tossing around.
