Read the October 8, 2019 Press Release,

detailing what will happen while we’re closed – we have a lot of work to do to Write Our Next Chapter!

Key Items:

Meeting Rooms During Renovations – 2nd floor rooms will be Unavailable for several months.

The Parks&Rec office on the 1st floor will continue to be open during our closure.  They will be moving back to City Hall later this fall.

Due dates have been extended, so don’t worry about fines accruing during the closure.

The Iowa History Files program on Sunday the 20th will still happen in the Community Room, though the rest of the Library will be closed.
