Storytime
It's back!

We’re excited for storytime to start up again in August! We have two different storytime groups that are available at four different times throughout the week. Toddler Time is the perfect place for little ones who are ready to listen to simple books and do songs and rhymes. Preschool Storytime is for children who are getting prepared to enter kindergarten and are ready to listen to longer, more complicated books. Toddler Time is on Mondays and Thursdays at 10:30am and Preschool Storytime is on Tuesdays and Fridays at 10:30am. We hope to see you there!


Adult Summer Reading
Exercise Your Mind

Don’t let the kids have all the fun this summer! This July, Summer Reading for Adults is ramping up the excitement factor. Join us!

First, pick up a Summer Reading brochure. It features reading challenges and activities that will earn you tickets toward our prize drawings. Weekly drawings include tees and totes, and our Grand Prize Drawing is a Samsung tablet.

Second, put a little “play” in your life! We have a few great events that will remind you of summers past, when you dropped everything to have fun. You’re invited to:

ADULT RECESS
WEDNESDAY, JULY 13 – 5:00-7:00 PM
Put on your play clothes and join us for outdoor games in City Park. We’ll have yard-zee, disc golf, hopscotch, and more!

ADULT TRIVIA NIGHT
TUESDAY, JULY 19 – 7:00 PM
Team up with a buddy and get ready to show-off all that “useless” knowledge rattling around inside your brain. You might even win a prize!

ADULT MURDER MYSTERY NIGHT
FRIDAY, JULY 29 – 6:00-8:00 PM
Channel your inner sleuth as you solve puzzles to reveal the answer to our mystery. With fun games, snacks, and prizes – all after Library hours – you’re sure to have a killer time! (Sign up at the Reference Desk before July 27.)

Contact the Reference Librarians (733-2964 ext. 201) for more information.


3D Printing
Make it at the Library

3D printing will be avaliable at the Twin Falls Public Library starting July 11th! If you would like to try 3D printing, bring in your 3D .STL model file on a USB key or find a model on http://www.thingiverse.com. You can also create your own model at home using this free online Computer Aided Design software.

The Library 3D printer is a PrintrBot Simple Metal with a 6" x 6" x 6"/150mm x 150mm x 150mm build volume. The Library has red, white, blue, and green PLA filament to print your designs! Depending on the size and quality settings of the print, a job can take anywhere from minutes to hours so be prepared to come back to pick up your print. Prints will cost $0.10 per meter of PLA filament used. Once the print is completed the Library staff will contact you for pickup.

So be sure to checkout 3D printing the next time you visit the Library!
