Cd'A Library now offers wireless and remote printing services

Patrons of the Coeur d'Alene Library can now take advantage of wireless and remote printing services.

“This is something patrons and visitors have been asking for since we opened the new building,” said Christopher Brannon, the library's Information Technology Coordinator. “We are very pleased to finally provide that service.”

The new capability is funded by the Coeur d'Alene Public Library Foundation.

Patrons can use the service in three different ways. An internet-equipped device can be used in the library or any remote location to access the libraries website and click on the Services link and the link for printing. The user will then be asked to provide an email address, and to select the document they'd like to print.

Documents can also me emailed from any location to cdpl-frontave-bw@printspots.com for black and white, or to cdpl-frontave-color@printspots.com for color printing. Documents will need to be sent as attachments.

Bumblebee Campground closed for 2015

Bumblebee Campground in the Idaho Panhandle National Forest will remain closed for the 2015 season.

The decision came from the Coeur d'Alene River Ranger District of the Idaho Panhandle National Forests over safety risks associated with loose limbs in the trees above campsites that could become falling projectiles in the case of a wind event.

Crews evaluate the campground for hazards prior to opening each season. Last summer, crews removed a large number of diseased, dead and dying trees to improve public safety at the Bumblebee Campground site. 

During this year's inspections, numerous, large, loose limbs were discovered in the over-story above the campground's campsites. According to the Ranger District, a typical winter, including heavy winter storms and higher snow loads, would have most likely dislodged these limbs. However, last year's mild winter did not provide these needed stresses to clear the over-story of loose tree limbs. the District will assess the trees again after a more typical winter season with the hopes of having the campground open for the 2016 season.
