In just the past decade changing technology has influenced the services that are expected from libraries. The Coeur d’Alene Public Library wants to know how well we have responded and where improvement is needed.
During April library users are being asked how they use the technology at the library by responding to an online survey made available by the Information School at the University of Washington.
To participate go to the library website: www.cdalibrary.org and the survey link will appear automatically.
The Impact Survey is anonymous, available in English and Spanish, and takes 10-15 minutes to complete. Responses are confidential and the survey does not collect any personally identifiable information.
 The Impact Survey is the result of a successful research initiative from the University of Washington with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In 2009, the University of Washington Information School conducted “Opportunity for All: How the American Public Benefits from Internet Access at U.S. Libraries,” the first large-scale investigation of the ways U.S. library patrons use computers and the Internet at public libraries, why they use it, and how it impacts their lives.

LEGO-rama – the program for kids who love to build – will be Saturday, Jan. 18, 1-3 p.m., in the Community Room at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, 702 E. Front Ave.
The theme for the ninth annual LEGO program is “Space, Building for the Future.” Entries in the design contest can be space ships, space stations, launch facilities, Moon or Mars colonies, aliens and their spacecraft – anything space-related.
One entry per participant can be entered in the contest for ages 4 to 13. Entries must be original designs – not a LEGO or compatible brand kit – built by the participant without adult assistance. Entries are limited to a 15-by-15 inch footprint (the space it occupies on a table). Judging will be in age groups 4-6, 7-10, and 11-13.
For the second year judging and this year’s program will be provided by members of the TeraViks FIRST Robotics Club at Coeur d’Alene High School.
Entries should be built prior to being brought to the library. And can be delivered to the Community Room as early as 12:30 p.m. Judging will be from 1:30 to 2:15 p.m. Certificates will be awarded in each age group. A People’s Choice award will also be made based on audience voting.
Anyone age 14 and older may display designs, but these will not be included in judging. Exhibition Category entries are also limited to a 15-by-15 inch footprint.
Complete rules are available in the Seagraves Children’s Library or online at www.cdalibrary.org.
LEGO-rama, like all youth programs at the library, is supported by the Friends of the Coeur d’Alene Public Library.
Young builders are also invited to participate each week in LEGO Club in the Seagraves Children’s Library. Offered as part of the Winter Reading Programs, the club is for ages 5-8 and meets Thursdays, 4-5 p.m.

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.
