  • This delightful program introduces your baby, birth to 24 months, to the sounds of language and music through simple stories, songs, and rhymes. Each week, we will showcase a brand new easy picture book that has recently joined our collection! This virtual program will be posted to the IFL Website before 11 AM each Monday.

  • Join IFL Children's Librarian, Val as she reads stories every Tuesday. There might be random visits from the house chickens during story-time who love to listen to the stories while they snack on their cheese. Story-time will be 15-30 minutes with an easy craft time afterwards. This virtual program is geared towards kids aged 2 to 5 years, but all ages are welcome to join in on the fun! The program will be posted to the IFL website before 3 PM on Tuesday afternoons.

  • The Craft House is a virtual arts & craft program for kids aged six through twelve. Together, we'll explore the wondrous world of arts & crafts while we work on some cool projects of our own! All of our projects will be made with materials that can easily be found in your own home, Wal-Mart, or the Dollar Store. The Craft House will be available on this website and on the IFL Facebook page each Thursday after 3 PM.

  • Wednesdays at 3:00
    Lauri will walk you through a weekly craft from start to finish using materials that you could find around your house. The videos will be posted to the timeline if you need to source materials and you can watch at your leisure.

  • We normally hold an in-person book club once a month where we come together to talk about a certain cookbook, now we are pivoting to a different platform. An online community where we can all come together to swap recipes and talk about the success and challenges we are having during this time of having to cook more than we probably all usually do.

  • Culture is defined as “The sum total of the learned behavior of any given society.” This is a great definition for Mr. Kocher’s high school World Cultures class that it came from, but for the purposes of this program, it will also mean how we experience culture in our own community, tapping into the rich talents within our own town. Libraries are a hub of culture in any community.
    Join in as we explore topics such as music, painting, theater, languages, story-telling, history, crafts, poetry, pottery, film watching and making, and any other aspect of culture that we can include.
