Twin Falls Public Library


Picture Your Neighborhood
Capture your neighborhood for posterity

Help us preserve our local cultural heritage. During the weekend of March 3 & 4 (March 4th is Idaho Day!), step outside and take a photo of your neighborhood. Then, upload the picture and a brief description to our website: tfpl.org/pyn.

We'll compile the photos and add them to our historical photograph database so we'll have a record of what Twin Falls looked like in 2018. Your great-grandchildren will thank you!

Have questions? Call the Reference Desk at 208-733-2964 ext 200 or email us: tfpl@twinfallspubliclibrary.org.
