UPDATE 5/22/20: The Library building is still closed to the public.

However! We are restarting curbside pickups for holds this week. Pickups will be by-appointment only.  Once you receive a notice that you have items ready, please call 515-222-3404 to make an appointment.  That number will be answered during pickup hours:  currently 10a-5p M-F and 10a-1p Saturday.

Once you have your appointment, come to the library at your appointed time.  At that time, your items will be placed, in a bag, on the table by the front door so you can pick them up.

We started this week with existing holds ready for pickup.  Feel free to place new holds online – we are doing our best to get those pulled and out, as well.  Our staff are working very hard – please be patient.  Thank you!

After that, hopefully in mid-June if things improve locally, we will begin limited access to the building and in-building services. We’re still working out – especially in light of our ongoing renovations – how to move people safely through the building.

Our director put out a video last week with some basic guidelines we’re considering:

We may have shortened hours upon reopening – that’s TBD. Watch our website and social media for more info.

We look forward to seeing you. Please stay safe and healthy!
