A place full of resources, books, videos and more. While in Boise, I usually spend my free time at the library. Conveniently located in the downtown Boise, there are enough parking slots but fill up very fast on weekends.

They always have lots of new books and a great staff. I also like the magazine section run by the used book store. Magazines at $7 and up at the newssatnd are no bueno!

I was just at the Boise Public Library today for INDIE AUTHOR DAY. It was extremely interesting to listen to the panel discussions, author readings, and talking with many local authors at their tables.

We were at the zoo and walked over here to check out the Comic Con and Library. Nice event and nice library. Parking was tight though.

A great library system with interconnections to other local libraries. Here at the main branch, there are books (of course) but also the latest--you can borrow iPads, etc.--electronics and newspapers, magazines, etc. Be on the lookout for their various activities year round. If you can't...More
