— The Kooskia Community Library has a variety of upcoming events planned for the next several months.

*On April 22, doors will open at 8 a.m. for the sale at the Kooskia Community Center. Used books of all kinds, as well as CDs and DVDs, will be available at bargain prices. Hardbacks are 50 cents, paperbacks, 25 cents. At 11 a.m., the $1 fill-a-bag sale will begin. Those with books to donate can drop them off at the library; no magazines. All proceeds benefit Kooskia Community Library.

•A basket raffle for two separate gift baskets, donated by Jim and Mindy Wiebush, will be raffled during the book sale as well. One basket is all things birdy - seed, books, socks, etc. The other has yummy mixes - scones, soup, chili, etc. Tickets are $1 each for two chances to win one of the baskets. Tickets can be purchased at the Kooskia Library or at the book sale. The drawing will be held at the end of the book sale.

•Spring presentation: “The Southern Route of The Nez Perce Trail: Past, Present & Future,” is set for Saturday, April 29, 1 p.m., at the Kooskia Community Center. Dennis Baird will tell the history of the ancient travel route from Idaho to Montana. Refreshments will be provided.

•Summer reading: Librarian Dena Puderbaugh has a summer program planned for area children. Dates will be shared soon.

•Student scholarships are available for “Writers at Harriman.” Friends of the Kooskia Community Library is offering two scholarships to attend this weeklong residential writing camp where students work with professional writing teachers and participate in outdoor activities with other students from Idaho. This is offered to students who are currently enrolled in 11th and 12th grades, who attend Clearwater Valley High School, as well as students who are in an alternative educational program within the Clearwater Valley school district.
