Iowa Library reopens at Thomas Avenue location

The Calcasieu Parish Public Library has announced that the Iowa Library, located at 109 South Thomson Avenue, is now open to the public.

The library, which had been housed in a temporary lease space, is now back at the Thomson Avenue location and features new furniture and fixtures, as well upgrades to paint, shelving, technology and more.

In addition, the library now has available meeting rooms which the public can reserve, located in the original location, just right behind the main building of the Iowa Library.

“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.
