winter reading challenge

Hey kids! Join the Book Bingo Challenge and earn prizes for reading this winter.

You can pick up a Book Bingo Log at the Sandpoint Library or download and print one (fits best on legal-sized paper). Start reading now and when you complete your first bingo bring your log in for your first prize - after January 2nd.

This challenge runs through February but get started soon! Grand prize drawings are January 25th and March 1st! 

Test Proctoring


Professional development has certainly changed over time. Many people are improving their skills by pursuing degrees online. Taking classes inevitably leads to testing and a problem for some students who live far away from campus. The library can help.

In the Lifelong Learning Center, we offer free test proctoring. Currently, we proctor exams through many online colleges and training programs.
If we currently don't proctor through a school, the student simply needs to send our contact information to them and we'll set it up through their school. Then the student schedules their exam and takes the test in one of our private rooms!

For more information, please contact our coordinator, Mike Bauer, 208-265-2665.
