Welcome to the Iowa Tribal Library!
“Our library door is always open.”
Mission Statement: 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. We strive to offer meaningful resources, materials, and help for literacy, education, computer skills, employment, and wellness for the Iowa Tribe and its community.
