About Us

The Blackfoot Public Library has been providing library service to the Blackfoot area since 1915. Conveniently located in downtown Blackfoot on North Broadway next to the Post Office, the Library is on the ground floor of the City Building. In addition to the City of Blackfoot, our service area includes a library district that covers the Groveland, Rose, and Wapello areas. Residents of all these areas can obtain library cards free of charge. We also have a reciprocal agreement with other libraries in Bingham County, which means that County residents can obtain a Blackfoot Public Library card once they have a card from their “home” library.

As you visit public libraries in this day and age you will find that the time of the shushing librarian is gone. Libraries are vibrant, welcoming and dynamic entities that constantly evolve to meet the current and future needs of the public. We will always strive to do our best to meet those needs. We welcome suggestions on how we can improve our service. Our staff of 12 has many years of experience working in libraries and is here to serve you.
