COVID-19 July 2020 Update:

We are currently open Monday to Friday from 1pm to 5pm.  As you enter the library you will see a large glass partition between the librarian and patrons, we also have hand sanitizer out for the public to use, (as well as antibacterial hand soap in both bathrooms), we also encourage mask wearing but it is not mandatory. We would like everyone to social distance from others (6 feet minimum). When you return your books we sanitize them and they are set in the back room for 72 hours before we re-shelf them. At this time the library is limiting computer time to 30 minutes and after a patron uses the computer we disinfect the area. The water fountain and the meeting room are currently closed to the public. Many times a day we wipe down the checkout counters, bathrooms, and the 2 entrance door handles on both sides as well as the drop box handles. We also encourage patrons to use curb side pickup if they are unsure of coming in, we also still will deliver to your house within Fairbank area. If anyone would like further information please call or email the library at 319-635-2487 or f.library@mchsi.com, we would be happy to answer your questions.
