What's Happening at Lewiston City Library?

Lewiston City Library is a Recipient of YALSA's 2014 Teens' Top Ten Book Giveaway!
The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) announced Lewiston City Library as 1 of 100 libraries in the United States to receive 25 new young adult books. The Teens' Top Ten is a "teen choice" list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books from the previous year. The Library currently has all 25 titles on display in front of the Teen Room and ready for check-out!

Check out YALSA's YouTube introduction to the amazing titles or read about each nominated book.

Genealogy and Local History Collection
The Genealogy and Local History Collection is now available to the public on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm, or by appointment. Please feel free to email or phone the library at 208.798.2525 if you need to schedule an appointment. 

The collection has over 2,300 items including census records, microfilm, cemetery records from the area, and local yearbooks and business directories. 

New to the library - Ancestry and World Vital Records
In addition to re-opening the Genealogy and Local History collection to the public we have added two new databases to assist with genealogy research. 

Ancestry and World Vital Records are both designed to assist with family research and each include millions of digitized records. Please feel free to ask library staff if you need assistance with either database.
