Teen Writers Room: Saturday, May 2, 1 p.m., Boise Public Library, main branch. If you are 12-17 and love to write, you have your own space in the library once a week. Bring your notebooks and computers and join other writers in the Gates Room for a drop-in, non-facilitated room of your own. We’ll provide writing prompts if you need inspiration or you can work on existing projects. It’s entirely your space and your time.

Saturday Storytime: Saturday, May 2, 11 a.m., Barnes & Noble, Boise. “What Do You Do With an Idea” by Kobi Yamada. Children of all ages will find inspiration in this story that asks us to nurture an idea, no matter how silly it may seem. Activities will follow.
