Eagle Fun Days is July 8-9, get the full schedule here!
Eagle is Home
As long as Eagle Fun Days has been around, it has been ever evolving. When I think of festivals, I think of people having fun, local businesses presenting their wares in booths for spectators, parades, music, and fair food - we have all that. What sets Eagle Fun Days apart, are activities like the famous Wet and Wild Parade, subjecting spectators to a much needed douse of water and the biggest water fight around. We have a Cornhole Tournament (bean bag toss) complete with bragging rights and a Cornhole set to the winners. We have a custom car show with appearances by the Potato Pinups, a Fun Run benefiting Eagle High School and we go out in style with the return of the spectacular fireworks show! Eagle Fun Days is July 8-9 make sure to support our community and join in the fun because #EagleisHOME. For complete details visit

Volunteer of the Month
The City of Eagle recognizes the importance of volunteerism and is taking a moment to thank those who selflessly give of themselves to the community.
The City of Eagle is pleased to recognize Kim Lyons as the Volunteer of the Month. Kim has been riding and racing mountain bikes at the Ada/Eagle Bike Park for years. She began giving back to the Bike Park in several ways. She volunteers hours and hours, with shovel in hand, repairing trails in her spare time. She recruits volunteers for trail maintenance and special events.  Last year, as a member of the Dirt Dolls, a large women’s mountain biking group, Kim provided invaluable advice to Eagle Parks and Recreation on matters concerning trails. Kim continues to make a difference in Eagle’s quality of life and we appreciate her efforts.

Summer Reading Program - Library Director Steve Bumgarner
We’re half-way through the library’s Summer Reading Program, and there’s still plenty of time to register and help your kids be ready for school.  Your kids determine how many books they’ll read by July 31, and if they read the agreed-to number of books and report to Library staff about just a few of them, they’ll earn weekly prizes and be invited to a special evening to celebrate their achievement.  It’s an easy and fun way to avoid the “summer slide”, the decline of reading skills that occurs during the summer months.
Fit and Fall Proof is now offered at the Library.  This free exercise-based fall prevention program for older adults focuses on functional exercises that reduce the risk of falling.  It’s a great way to help stay active and safe.  Fit and Fall Proof meets every Tuesday and Thursday at 1:00 pm in the meeting room.
You’re able to download five (5) songs per week (they’re yours forever) AND stream music for three hours per day per card through the Library’s Freegal subscription, a collection of over 10,000,000 songs from thousands of music labels.  To stream or download music from Freegal, visit the library’s webpage ( and click on the music link.  Freegal is also available on mobile devices.  
The Library also has online access to The Value Line Investment Survey, a unique source of financial information designed to help investors make informed investment decisions that fit their individual goals and levels of risks.  To begin using this great service, visit the Library’s webpage (, click on the Research link and then the ValueLine logo.

In addition to the Summer Reading Program, there are many free programs happening at your Library this July, including:
  • Summer Fun : Ninjas!, Tuesday, July 12, 2:00 pm : Make ninja action figures and prove your ninja skills on an obstacle course.
  • Etched Glass (for teens), Tuesday, July 12, 4:00 pm : Create a unique decorative jar by etching your design into glass.

Eagle’s Only Parking Meter - Museum Coordinator Alana Dunn
The original Fun Fair in 1964 was successful because of the number of volunteers involved in making sure of its success; with that it was able to achieve its fundraising goals. Among its numerous promoters was Jim Dunn, a local parking meter representative. He arranged for the donation of a single meter that was fitted with a special sign labeled “Mayor’s Emergency Fund”, which was then used to publicize the fair’s fundraising efforts. The meter was placed in front of what was then the old library, now the Museum. Honorary mayor Bob Salter (Eagle’s first mayor was appointed in 1971) unveiled it during the Fun Fair festivities and today it resides here at the museum. It is still a proud symbol of Eagle’s community fundraising activities and the fact that the city has never charged for parking.
The Eagle Historical Society and the Eagle Historical Museum presents the “Community Cabinet.”
This collection of mice was on display for the month of June thanks to the Idaho Inkspots Calligraphy Guild.
