@Your library 7-6-2020

We are going to start our next phase of our reopening plans starting July 6th.  We will open by APPOINTMENT to limit the number of contacts and to ensure patrons have a comfortable browsing experience. We are going to allow one person/family into the library for 30 minutes, after which we will properly clean and sanitize. We ask that children are not left unattended as there are no toys or computers available. If you would like to make an appointment, please call 319-646-6858 to schedule a time.  Thank you for your patience while we continue to navigate these uncharted times.  Curbside pickup will be continued for anyone wishing to use this service.

Big Library Read

It’s time to gear up for OverDrive’s next “Big Library Read” title—The Darwin Affair by Tim Mason.  This title will be available for simultaneous use through the BRIDGES collection from June 22—July 13.

 London, June 1860: When an assassination attempt is made on Queen Victoria, and a petty thief is gruesomely murdered moments later one block away, Chief Detective Inspector Charles Field quickly surmises that these crimes are connected to an even more sinister plot. Was Victoria really the assassin’s target? Are those closest to the Crown hiding something? And who is the shadowy figure witnesses describe as having lifeless, coal-black eyes?
