A new series of programs with profiles of the men and women who shaped the history of this region begins at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, 702 E. Front Ave., on Thursday, Feb. 18 at 7 p.m.
Offered free at the library in partnership with the Museum of North Idaho, “Inland Northwest Hall of Fame,” will be presented by regional historian Robert Singletary, Programming and Marketing Director for the museum.
Singletary said each program will provide a snapshot of three to five individuals of note from Idaho, Washington, Montana, and other areas.
The three profiles planned for Feb. 18 will be the explorer and mapmaker David Thompson, Catholic missionary Father Pierre Jean DeSmet, and road engineer and soldier John Mullan.
Singletary said that he hopes the series will be the genesis of a project to collect the personal stories of men and women from the early history of the region through modern times. He said he hopes to involve local residents and historic preservation groups as well as interstate historical organizations to nominate inductees into the Hall of Fame. Ultimately the photos and profiles would be collected for a book or series of books, he said.
A regional author and musician, Singletary has been a college history instructor and has been involved in historical societies in Kootenai County and at the state level. A frequent presenter at the library, he most recently completed a history series leading up to Idaho statehood.
The new series will continue on these dates: March 24, April 28, May 26, June 23, July 28, Aug. 25, Sept. 22, Oct. 27, and Nov. 17. With the exception of the first and last programs, the series is offered on the fourth Thursday of each month.

Entry forms for the 28th annual Writers Competition at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library are now available.
The Writers Competition is for fiction and nonfiction prose – no poetry please – up to 2,000 words. Entry forms, rules and a guide to creating an entry are available by visiting the Coeur d’Alene Public Library or the Lake City Public Library (inside Lake City High School, Monday-Thursday, 3-6:30 p.m.), by e-mail request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or by sending a self-addressed, stamped envelope to: Writers Competition, Coeur d’Alene Public Library, 702 E. Front Ave., Coeur d’Alene, ID 83814-4012.
Entry forms can also be downloaded from the library website:
The deadline for entries is March 31. Each competitor may submit up to two entries in whatever combination of fiction and/or nonfiction they choose. Entry fees for the competition are $1 for ages 6-11, and $2 for ages 12 and up.
The rules for the competition have changed slightly this year. Competitors will need to submit only one clean copy of their entries rather than the four copies previously required.
“We have been concerned with all the paper handling and waste involved,” said Communications Coordinator David Townsend, who organizes the competition. “Also, we felt it was time for the competition to make use of digital resources. Judge will be given the option of reading and reviewing the entries online for the first time. This also means we have the mechanism for ‘publishing’ more than one copy of the collected entries.”
Entries will be judged in age groups 6-8, 9-11, 12-14, 15-18, and 19-plus by professional writers, editors, and educators. Winning entries will receive cash awards in each category and age group, $100 for first, $50 for second, and $25 for third. Professionally bound volumes containing all entries in the competition will be placed in the library collection.
The Writers Competition was originally funded by a grant from the Hecla Mining Co., but in recent years has been supported by the Coeur d’Alene Kiwanis Club with additional funding and volunteer support from the Friends of the Library.
