Donate Toiletries for K-12 Students

The library has setup a collection point for toiletry items to be donated to the Pocatello/Chubbuck School District #25 supply pantry.

From now until September 17, library staff will accept items like shampoo, soap, lotion, deodorant, towels, washcloths, laundry detergent, and combs for students in need. Every little bit, from a tube of toothpaste to a hair brush, will help a local student on their way to educational success.

New and unopened goods will be accepted at the first floor checkout desk. All items will be donated to the school pantries.

Farm Literature

Harvest season will be underway when our Fall Literary Series begins with a look at how farm life has influenced some of the giants of literature.

Join us on Tuesday, August 30 at 6:30 p.m., when ISU instructor and PhD candidate Jeff Howard will present “Writing the Farm: The Appeal and Role of the Rural in American Literature.”

This three-part presentation includes an in-depth look how depictions of farmers and farming have changed since the times of Roman poet Virgil to John Steinbeck and beyond. Attendees will also get a chance to write about their own experiences with agriculture and Howard will read from his own work, “Nest Full of Pinkies.” The piece of creative non-fiction explores ideas of values, family, nostalgia, and farm life in the West.
