Essay Writing Class
December is flying by and the new year will be upon us before we know it. There is still time to sign up for an essay writing class with John Rember, to be held Monday nights at 6:30 pm, from January 5 through February 23. Rember will be emphasizing basic writing skills, editing, effective communication with an audience, and confidence in your work. Cost of the class includes copying fees and a suggested donation to the library. This is an amazing opportunity to improve your writing skills and learn from a former College of Idaho professor and published author. For more information contact the library.
Finding Legos
The library would like to start a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) club for school aged children. We are asking for donations of Lego's, either blocks or kits, to start our program. We will begin with Lego building challenges and expand the program from there.
Tax Credit for Donations
Individuals and corporations who contribute to libraries are eligible for tax savings. Idaho Code section 63-3029A allows individuals or corporations to take a tax credit for charitable contributions made to public libraries, library districts and the Idaho Commission for Libraries.

An individual taxpayer's contribution is allowed as an itemized deduction on the federal return and on the Idaho return. In addition, the taxpayer receives and Idaho tax credit for the contribution. The credit is limited to the smallest of one-half of the amount contributed, 50% of the individual's income tax, or $500 ($1,000) on a joint return). Check with your accountant or the Idaho State Tax Commission for complete information.
