We have over 28,000 books on our shelves - fiction and non-fiction.  We have a section of "Classic Books" and "Story Collections" as well as paperback books, large print books, audio books, DVD movies, non-fiction DVDs and music CDs.  Local residents and visitors from out of state use the Genealogy Section quite often.  Updated regularly are our county newspapers, the Des Moines Register, and magazines, local newsletters, and catalogs.

Our Children's Area has board books on the Reading Steps, easy books for youngster and juvenile fiction and non-fiction books.  We also have a Wii, DVD movie watching area, puzzles, games, puppets, checkers table, coloring table and 2 computers.  We hope to have a new "electronic game table" installed sometime this fall. 

A special area is reserved for our Young Adults with comfortable chairs and their own fiction, non-fiction and graphic novels shelves surrounds their space to five them some privacy.
