The Coeur d’Alene Public Library will be a modern 21century library that satisfies community library needs through an exceptional multimedia collection and an excellent staff. Our personal touch and responsiveness to changing needs will provide an intergenerational public space that becomes an inviting community hub for all our residents.

We envision the 21st century library to be a both a physical place and a virtual space for residents to meet, share ideas, be entertained, educated and informed.

Library users will experience this vision when they use the services of the Coeur d’Alene Public Library. They will find a library that will:

  • Be innovative and continually changing, and adapting to meet community needs.
  • Be a safe and secure welcoming location for our community’s students with materials, spaces, and activities to engage their interest.
  • Be a welcoming, inviting community hub connecting a diverse population of users to their community and to each other.
