Welcome to the
Oneida County Library
Our library is located close to downtown Malad City, Idaho, next to the city park. Because of the generous donations of many, including the Redfield Foundation, we have a new children's addition. We have a collection of over 26,000 items including books, magazines, reference materials, videos, DVDs, music CDs, and audio books. Our library system is automated so it is easy to search our computers for titles, authors, subjects, series, teacher book lists, and even accelerated reading. We also offer free Internet access on our computers.
New Class at Oneida County Library! Offered in person or virtually.
The Oneida County Library Director, Kathy Kent, will be teaching a series of classes on Digital Scrapbooking. We will be using the software Adobe Photoshop Elements Versions 2015 and above. This is a chance to find out how to organize your photos and digital scrapbook supplies and create beautiful scrapbook pages that can be put in a book and printed out or just be enjoyed digitally. Please use the online signup form to enroll. You can also call if interested. We will begin in September.
Virtual Story Hour
Preschool Story hour will begin on September 15th. Come pick up your crafts on the Monday before story hours. Please sign up online so we have a count. Preschool Story Hour is for children ages 0-5 or ages 0 to Kindergarten.
Extending Grab Bags!
The Oneida County Library has received a grant from the F.M., Anne G., and Beverly B. Bistline Foundation. This grant is to fund grab ‘n go STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Arts, Mathematics) for all youth in our community ages 0-17 during the COVID-19 restrictions. There are no requirements except to sign up online and come to the library and get your bag! We ask that you sign up on our online form so that we know how many bags to put together and what ages to prepare. We will start grab ‘n go bags again on September 14th, and you can get one for your child each week for six weeks. Sign up forms will be on our Facebook page and our website http:oneidacountylibrary.org
We have a new grant for all those youth who will be starting Kindergarten in the fall. Come to the library and get your Jump Start Kit. This includes two new books and so many activities and information on Kindergarten Readiness. If your child is going to be in Kindergarten, please stop by and pick up your free kit.
Our Library has been serving as a satellite office for the Dept. of Labor. If you need help filing unemployment insurance for any reason including the Corona-virus click on the above link for help.
