Library Services

Our library programs are back and better than ever!

Youth Programming
Story Time is every Wednesday from 9:45 am to 10:15 am for kids 0 to 5 years of age. We have puppets, flannel board stories, songs, parachute, musical instruments, snack & craft. Come join the fun!

Our After-School Program is every Wednesday from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm for K through 5th grade. We are excited to begin a new after-school program here at Granger Public Library. Each Wednesday of the month, there will be a designated activity. Although we will typically follow the schedule below, there are a few exceptions depending on the month. Our first After-School Program will begin on August 30th. Excluding the movie days, we will typically start each day with a story. After the story we will then relate a craft, game, or activity to the story’s theme. Programs are centered between PreK through 5th grade, but all ages are welcome to attend!

Crochet & Knit

Crochet & Knit is every Tuesday from 9:30 am to 11:30 am.

Book Club

Join our Book Club!  The Adult Book Club meets every third Monday at 6:30 p.m. It is facilitated by the members. If you are interested in joining or would like to start another book club, please contact Harriet Peterson at 515-999-2088.

Patron Computers

The library provides two computers for the use of the public during normal library hours. We also provide free Wi-Fi. We ask that all public who use the library computers carry a library card. One may be obtained at any time for people in or out of the area.

Borrowing Materials From Another Library

When making your request, if possible, please provide the title and author of the book. Other information regarding inter-library loan requests:

  • there is no fee for this service
  • the material can be kept only as long as the loaning library indicates; otherwise, if there is a request for an extension of time, a request must be made to and approved by the loaning library
  • if the material is not picked up within 5 business days of notification, the item will be returned to the loaning library
  • only 3 books will be given to you during each rotation

Copying Services

The library provides both printing and copying services. A required fee is to be given for every copy or print. The fee includes $0.10 for black and white copies and prints, and $0.50 for color copies and prints. We do not provide special paper. If you would like your prints to come out on anything other than the provided white 8.5X11 paper you must supply it.
