upcoming EVENTs:


Monday April 29th - Thursday, May 2nd

During Idaho Gives the Meridian Library Foundation will be raising funds to support youth at Meridian Library's new location in South Meridian at Pinnacle (expected to open later this year). Our focus is on enhancing the teen lounge, transforming it into a vibrant and safe haven for youth in our community. This year, all the funds we raise through Idaho Gives will be dedicated to furnishing the teen lounge with comfortable booth seating and entertainment essentials such as a PlayStation, Xbox, controllers, a variety of games, and a 65-inch television. We aim to create an inviting environment where teens can unwind, connect with peers, and explore their interests.

Art Kits

We have a few art kits left from our 'Night with the Artist' event! If you couldn't make it in person but still want to join the creative fun with art supplies & tutorials by nationally acclaimed authors, now's your chance! We even have an exclusive, new BONUS Honeycomb tutorial with all new supplies for those who want to keep creating & keep trying new art mediums!

These kits are offered with a suggested donation. 100% of your donations will directly support the Meridian Library District's Children's Collection!

Figaro Adoption Kit

The Meridian Library District is commemorating its 100th year in the community! In revisiting the library's history, we've discovered an unconventional resident from the 1970s – Figaro, a black & white cat, who adopted the library in September 1976 and lived there for approximately four years. The Meridian History Center has diligently unraveled the mysteries surrounding Figaro, enabling us to reintroduce Figaro to the library, not just in memory. In honor of the centennial, the Foundation has created an exclusive Figaro Adoption Kit as a thank-you to our donors.
