“Now that renovations are complete, the town of Iowa can enjoy two library buildings on the same property,” said Christy Comeaux, Public Information Officer for the library system. “The former library building now houses meeting spaces which the public can reserve, and the main library houses a large collection of materials, drive thru services, and much more!”

The Iowa Library’s hours of operation are 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday.

Library officials plan to have a Grand Opening celebration in the coming months.
