Annual Report

Annual Report

Every year librarians in libraries across the state keep track of all sorts of information for their library. These numbers are submitted to their library boards, town councils, their county supervisors, and even to the state of Iowa. These are some of the fun things to know about our library, like what is being checked out and how often.
