Library Access

We are excited to offer additional services and public access to the Library beginning, Monday, April 5. The health and safety of our community continues to be our priority as we adapt to provide these new services.

Staff are available Monday - Thursday from 9 AM to 7 PM, Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM and Saturday from 9 AM to 1 PM, via telephone, email or live chat on our website.

NEW! Walk-in browsing will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3 PM to 7 PM, Fridays from 3 PM to 5 PM, and Saturdays from 9 AM to 1 PM. Browsing visits are limited to a 30-minute visit, with a max of 20 patrons in the building at a time. Don't forget to mask up!

Single Household Appointments are available Monday through Friday from 9 AM - 12 PM. These 20 minute visits allow one household at a time to browse for materials with no limit on the quantity you can check out, use a computer, make copies, or send a fax. To make an appointment, book online or call the Library at 319-624-2678 during staff hours. Don’t forget to mask up!

New! Computer Appointments are available during walk-in browsing or by appointment. Computer appointments are 50 minutes, and households (6 max) are expected to remain in the study room for the duration of the appointment to reduce exposure to other households in the library. 

Library Pick-Up Hours Extended You can place materials on hold using our online catalog or by calling (319-624-2678) by 5 PM the day before pick-up. Available materials include books, audiobooks, DVDs, puzzles, and cake pans!

Staff will email or call you to confirm your materials are ready.
