The Coeur d’Alene and the Lake City public libraries will be closed due to two upcoming holidays.
The main library will close early, at 5 p.m., for New Year’s Eve on Dec. 31, and Lake City will be closed. Both libraries will be closed for New Year’s Day on Jan. 1.
The libraries will also be closed Monday, Jan. 21, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
When the libraries are closed many library resources are still available through the websites: www.cdalibrary.org and www.lcplibrary.org.
Patrons can access their library records using their library card numbers to check due dates, renew checkouts, and request holds from the Cooperative Information Network catalog.
Through the EXPLORE link the websites also provide access to numerous online resources such as reference materials, career planning, practice tests, automotive repair manuals, genealogy resources, travel guides, language learning and English as a second language services, and more.
Patrons can also download e-books through the OverDrive system. The Freegal Music Service allows cardholders to download and keep up to five songs a week and to stream music on Internet-linked devices.
