Something for everyone!


The St. Maries Public Library is celebrating 100 years of sharing books, knowledge and so much more.

Our library is a hub of the community, serving individuals, families and visitors.

Some of the community’s earliest settlers saw the need for the library in order to enrich the lives of those who called this home. Orland Scott, one of community leaders who worked to help form the library, thought books would bring “morality and culture” to the logging community.

Changes in the library’s 100 years have been astronomical. There are so many services offered compared to its first years as a lending. In addition to bound books, the library now offers music CD’s, magazines, E-books, CD Books, DVDs and computers with internet access.

Several events are planned to commemorate the anniversary. The display case in the library will features historical library memorabilia throughout October.

Other events include an author visit by Carol Crigger, of Spokane, Oct. 11 with her book “Three Seconds to Thunder,” a musical event is planed for mid-October and the annual Harvest Night is Oct. 31.

Story time for preschool children continues Tuesdays at 10 a.m. nd includes snacks and crafts for children. All ages are welcome to participate.

Also this month the library will offer an after school program for first through fifth graders, Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

The library will commemorate the anniversary with an open house celebration Oct. 26.
