"The great objection to new books is that they prevent our reading of the old ones".   by Joseph Joubert

We invite you to spend a few moments looking at our library Web site. With help from the State Library of Iowa we were able to create a place on the Web where you, our customers, can explore, learn and get help with all your information needs.  We are very grateful to the State Library for all their help.
