How can I use jquery to add a div once the screen reaches a maximum or minimum size?

I have a page built with a sidebar. However, once the screen gets too small, it is impractical to have a sidebar taking up so much space. I solved this by having it slide off screen.

I would like to add a div above the rest of the page content that includes the same content originally held by my sidebar.

I'm assuming that there is a way to trigger the jquery .add() function with screen size...any help would be greatly appreciated!

Instead of having it slide of screen why not just have it drop below the main content using a CSS media query?

What about this if you really wanted to use JS instead of CSS?

var add = true;
$(window).resize(function () {
    if (window.innerWidth < 300 /* or some other width */ && add) {
        add = false;
    } else if (window.innerWidth >= 300) {
        add = true;

That looks like it could work!
