CALL THE LIBRARY 712-826-2452 OR E-MAIL to visit with staff.

During the closure, patrons are asked to utilize the library’s curbside to-go service. To participate, people can reserve items online or call ahead. Once they are notified that their items are ready for pickup, they will need to come to the library’s front entrance, and call the library when they arrive, or honk 3 times. Items may be returned to the library’s red drop box, and all materials’ due date will be extended to May 30th. Any overdue fines will be waived during this time. 

Please call to make arrangements if you need computer or faxing services.
