This is the best library I've ever been in- more fun than the Library of Congress, and with librarians who like kids and don't yell at them to be quiet. The security guard (yes, there is one) walked through the book scanner & had the alarm go off on him. Everyone on staff & the patrons razzed him mercilessly for stealing books...until he looked down & realized my 4'-yr''-old was standing behind him with a not-yet-checked-out book. He did what all the Boise library staff do: Smiled.
No, they don't have the number of books in a city the size of NY or LA. However, they have a terrific summer reading program, events throughout the year for kids and adults alike, tons of movies and a "Guess the Story" panorama contest for kids which changes every week. Great place, and one of our all-time favorite places in Boise!!!
