March 19, 2020 News Release

In accordance with directives and recommendations from Governor Reynolds, the Iowa Department of Public Health, and the Center for Disease Control, and the City of New Sharon effective Thursday, March 19, will close the Stilwell Public Library for at least the next 4-weeks, at which time the situation will be revaluated.  During this time all related library and recreation activities and programs will be cancelled or postponed.  More details will be provided on Facebook and the respective websites.

The staff of the library is committed to providing materials to our community as long as we possibly can.  We are book lovers and know how tragic it would be, no matter your age, to be cooped up without reading material!  Though we need to limit access to the building, we have developed way for you to request materials and come pick them up.    Please contact us by phone, email, or Facebook Messenger to order any materials you want.  We will pull them and have them ready for you to pick up at our curb the next day.  All due dates for the library items will be extended to 30 days, with no penalties for overdue items, but you can return items at the drop box on the northwest corner of the library building.

Please watch our Facebook page for more detailed information on the services we are organizing as this is written.

You can contact us the following ways:
