Iowa’s Hidden Treasures with Dan Kaercher

The Ida Grove Library will be hosting a special event during Heritage Days weekend with Dan Kaercher, retired founding editor-in-chief of Midwest Living magazine and Iowa Public Television host. The event will take place on Sunday, June 30th at the Depot in Moorehead Park with a start time of 2pm. The Ida County Historical Society will be providing tours of the Stagecoach Inn, Barn and School on Sunday afternoon as well. Mr. Kaercher spent years traveling in almost every one of Iowa’s 99 counties in search of close-to-home attractions and getaways to share with his loyal readers and viewers. You’ll be amazed to learn what surprises you don’t know await right in your own backyard – Iowa.

This event is sponsored by a donation from the Heritage Days Committee to the library. Light refreshments will be served. We hope you come out to celebrate not only Ida Grove, but Iowa as well.

Ida Grove Library Receives Grant Award from Ida County Community Betterment Foundation

The Ida Grove Public Library Board and Staff would like to extend our sincerest thank you to the Ida County Community Betterment Foundation for the $7,000 grant we recently received to help update and modernize the children’s and young adults spaces at the Ida Grove Public Library.

The grant award will be combined with donations and fundraising efforts to help fund the grant proposal “Modern Designs to Inspire Minds”, set to begin after July 1, 2018. This project will help ensure that the youth in our community have a safe, inviting, comfortable space to meet, engage and explore their ever changing world.  Plans are underway to update the children’s library with additional shelving to create a dedicated space for ages 8-12, as well as create a brand new maker space for children to explore and invent. Additional updates planned include the creation of a young adult reading area in the main library as well as an update to the adult reading area.

The support of the Ida County Betterment Foundation through this grant award and grant awards received in the past have allowed the library to make many updates, ensuring that the library is an open community space accessible to all ages and abilities.
