New Library Hours Starting April 15, 2021!

On Monday, April 12, 2021, the Ida Grove Library Board of Trustees met in a regularly scheduled meeting to discuss modifying library operating hours to maintain a more consistent, easy to remember schedule for our community and patrons. The board voted, and unanimously approved to make a permanent change to library hours of operation.

New library hours are:

Monday – 10am – 6pm

Tuesday – 10am -5pm

Wednesday – 10am – 5pm

Thursday – 10am – 5pm

Friday – 10am – 6pm

Saturday – 10am -2pm

This change is effective April 15, 2021. While we continue to offer modified in-library services due to COVID-19, we are excited to offer an easy to remember schedule and a daily opening time of 10am Monday – Saturday! And, good news…this increases our weekly open hours from 40 to 41 hours per week. An extra hour to stop by and pick up something great to read :) We look forward to seeing you @ your library!
