The Senior Center is open from 9:00 AM until 4:00 PM Monday through Friday (closed on holidays). Anyone interested in activities in the Moscow Senior Center can call the Center at (208) 882-1562.

The coffee pot is always on at the center, and there's also tea. The center has a color TV with many cable channels along with a DVD/VCR player. There is a large library of books as well as a number of magazines.

The center has three desktop computers (Windows 10 PCs) available for use by seniors (55+); all PCs can access the internet at high speeds, and two PCs can print to a color printer.
The 1912 Center is a free wifi "hot spot," so bring your laptop or other "smart" device.

Checks may be made out to "Friendly Neighbors."
