The Coeur d’Alene Public Library’s Summer Reading Program for teens continues in July with more events, more prizes, and more fun. Haven’t heard about the Summer Reading Program? There are several ways to participate.
Activities and events are open to all teens ages 13 to 18, no registration required. Not interested in doing activities? Just pick up a copy of the Teen Reading Log whenever you’re in the library and keep track of the time you spend reading this summer. Any kind of reading counts – websites, magazines, books, comics, audiobooks — the list of potential reading material is endless.
Whenever you come to the library, turn in your log and your hours will become raffle tickets for our weekly prize drawings. Prize raffles in July will include movie passes, books, state park passes, and gift cards to Amazon.com, Target, Gooey’s, Starbucks, and more. Every teen who is able to complete 25 hours of reading between June 16 and Aug. 31 will also be entered into the grand prize drawing, with a chance to win a stack of more than 20 young adult books, a $50 Amazon gift card, or a Kindle Fire HDX.
Having trouble finding a ride down to the library? No sweat! You can also keep track of your reading time using our online reading logs, found at http://bit.ly/SRPlogs.

Need to print an airline boarding pass but your printer at home is out of toner? Are you at the library and have a document on your smart phone, laptop, or tablet that you would like to print?
The Coeur d’Alene Public Library has recently added a new capability – wireless and remote printing services.
“This is something patrons and visitors have been asking for since we opened the new building,” commented Christopher Brannon, Information Technology Coordinator for the library. “We are very pleased to finally provide that service.”
The new capability has been funded by The Coeur d’Alene Public Library Foundation.
The service works in three ways:
► From an Internet-equipped device in the library or any remote location access the library website – cdalibrary.org – and click the SERVICES link and the link for Printing or go directly to http://www.printeron.net/cdpl/frontave. The user will then be asked to provide an e-mail address and to select the document to be printed.
► From iOS or Android devices upload the PrinterOn app. Once installed, tap the QR button to scan the QR codes on the special bookmarks at the library to add its printers to your device then print as you normally would.
Printing can be picked up at the library during open hours the day it is sent. Black and white copies are 10 cents per page and color copies are 20 cents a page. The print-release station is located at the Research and Information Desk. Print jobs that are not picked up are automatically deleted from the system. Printing is limited to letter-size pages printed on one side and $10 of printing per project.
Patrons who need accommodation to participate in library programs or services are asked to contact the staff prior to the activity by calling 208-769-2315.
