The Oneida County Library, named as the "Best Library in Idaho" by the Idaho Library Association, is located close to downtown Malad City, Idaho, and next to the City Park. Built in the 1970's with an addition in early 2000, it provides a county center for library services and a meeting place for many groups.
Because of the generous continuing donations of the Redfield Foundation, we are always up-to-date on the bestsellers. With a collection of almost 30,000 items including books, magazines, reference materials, videos, DVDs, music CDs, and audio books, we have something for everyone. We also have downloadable eBooks through our local card catalog and ebooks and audio books available with Overdrive.
The library boasts a fireplace, tables chairs and a comfortaable atomosphere in which to settle down with a good book or read the latest magazine or newspaper. This is a popular meeting place for groups and is also where Author Nights and Book Club meetings are held.
We have four public computers for our adult patrons three computeres for our teens. Copies are 10 cents for black and white and $1.00 for color, but computer use is free. Four iPads are available to our children, and four iPads for our teens. Internet access is free both inside and outside of the library. Internet is available in our parking lot as well as the park pavillion.
Our Juvenile Section holds a wonderful collection of books, both fiction and nonfiction. There are also games to play with STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Math) activities, and a fun enviornement to sit and read a book.
Thanks to grant funding from several sources, our Children's Section now has STREAM Maker Spaces for play. We have several activities and four tables to play on and create.
Teen Central is a great place for our teens to gather. We have teen computers, games, books and STREAM activities in this section. A fun and educational place to just hang out.
Through several generous grants we are building not just a STREAM Section for our teens, but a STREAM program. These 3-D printers are just a glimpse of what is available to our teens.
