Idaho Gives

Libraries make a significant difference in people’s lives and are important for the benefit and quality of life for our community! What if you could help support this amazing organization by donating as little as $10 to Lewiston Library Foundation?  You’ll have that chance on each May through Idaho Gives day.

If you would like to support the library, please follow this link: Idaho Gives: Lewiston Library Foundation (or go to and search for Lewiston Library Foundation). Also, please follow us on Facebook. By promoting Idaho Gives, your contribution is truly amplified thanks to a pool of match and prize funds and some friendly competitions throughout the day.

Limited Edition Maquettes of Sharon Taylor Hall's The Reading Mother

The Lewiston Library Foundation is offering smaller (7.5” X 10”) limited edition maquettes of Sharon Taylor Hall’s The Reading Mother. Around the base of each are the last two lines of Strickland Garland’s poem: Richer than I you can never be—I had a mother who read to me. These sculptures, in bronze with a black walnut base on a turntable, sell for $1,700 each with all proceeds going to the library. This is a great gift for your mother or any reading mother. There are only 2 left, after which the foundry breaks the mold!

For more information, contact Dennis Ohrtman at (208) 743-0694 to reserve your bronze sculpture today. Lewiston Library Foundation, PO Box 1055, Lewiston, ID 83501.
