Lake City Library Moving to Skyway for Summer

Posted: 6/5/2018 11:38:18 AM
Lake City Public Library (LCPL) – which normally operates from the high school on Ramsey Road – will have a new home for the summer at a nearby elementary school.
The Lake City Branch will be closed June 11-14 and will reopen in the library at Skyway Elementary, 6621 N. Courcelles Pkwy., on June 18. The new location is only a few blocks from Lake City High School. From Ramsey Road go west on Hanley Avenue and north Courcelles after the roundabout.
The move was necessary, due to maintenance work at the high school.
Summer hours for the branch will be 12-5 p.m., Monday through Thursday. LCPL will have two summer programs on Tuesdays, Storytime with a Snack at 12 p.m., and LEGO Club 4-5 p.m. Chess Club will not continue through the summer.
Teens and children who are participating in Summer Reading can pick up and drop off Reading Logs at the branch and can also pick up prizes there.
LCPL is a joint project of the Coeur d’Alene Public Library and the Coeur d’Alene School District. JD Smithson, a library employee, is the branch manager.
The branch was opened in January 2016.
LCPL has its own book collection and makes use of the school computers for Internet access. The school’s Internet access is modified during the hours the public library operates to allow access to social media and other sites not available during the school day.
Library patrons can designate LCPL as a pickup site for books and other items placed on hold throughout the Cooperative Information Network catalog.
