From the Library Director

A message for our patrons (November 5, 2020)

In reviewing the statistics on positive corona virus cases in Mills County, the Library Board and I feel that opening the library would not be in everyone's best interest for public health reasons. We will continue to reevaluate the situation with guidance from local, state, and federal health authorities.

As we have done since May 18th, we will continue with several services via Curbside Service:

          Check out library items without direct contact - by calling 712-527-5252 for pick up time.

          Grab and Go Craft for Kids - call for pick up time.

          Copies, Printing, Faxing and Scanning available by appointment.

          Answering your questions by phone or email.

In addition to these services, we are now taking appointments for computer use in the library. Please call 712-527-5252 to set up your appointment.  We have safety procedures set in place and will go over them when you arrive.  Computer area will be sanitized before and after your use.  Hand sanitizer is available as well. 

At this time, we do not feel safe offering bathroom facilities to our patrons nor will you be able to browse for a book or other library collection due to cross contamination considerations.

All library materials returned to the library will be placed in quarantine for a short period of time before items are checked in by the staff.  This is a recommendation by the State Library of Iowa.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!

Please call 712-527-5252 with any questions or concerns you may have during this time.
