Welcome to the Iowa Tribe Library
"Our library door is always open."
The history of the Ioway people is written in many books and being written today. We invite all people to read, learn and share the rich heritage of the Iowa Tribe and of our relatives.
We are dedicated to promoting the love and teaching of reading beginning with the youngest to the young of heart. Our library belongs to our people. It is for them and the community that our people live in that we strive to offer literacy, educational, computer skills, employment and health resources.
