Library still provides access to IWD website

Published: Friday, July 26, 2013 12:01 p.m. CDT

While the software for Iowa Works has left the library, our Internet and computer access has not. People seeking Iowa Workforce Development can still obtain help from www.iowaworkforcedevelopment.gov through Internet access at the library.

This website will allow people to file for unemployment, search for jobs, create resumes and more. The IWD website will be added on all library computers as a shortcut, making it easier for people to get to the website quickly and start their search for new jobs or careers. 

Ronald McDonald Visit

Come to the library meeting room at 10:30 a.m. Monday, July 29, for this amazing magic show. Also be sure to bring pop-can tabs to support the Ronald McDonald House charity.

The library will accept pop-can tabs in any container, however plastic bags or big jugs or jars work best. Advance registration is not necessary to participate in this program.

Summer Reading

Program Logs

Participants in the Summer Reading Program, when they reach their reading goal, need to be sure to turn in their reading logs to the library before Aug. 1 to receive their ticket to the pizza and pool party at Maytag Park. The party will be held at 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2.

Readers who turn in their completed book log by Aug. 1 will also receive a coupon for one free admission for a child to the Blank Park Zoo and two tickets (one for a child, one for an adult) to attend an Iowa Cubs game at 1 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 11.

Logs will be accepted after Aug. 1, but readers who do so will not receive a pool party ticket. Keep reading!
