We invite you to spend a few moments looking at our library Web site. With help from the State Library of Iowa and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation we were able to create a place on the Web where you, our guests, can explore, learn and get help with your information needs.
When visiting in the Ionia area, please visit us in person.
We are located at 101 W. Iowa Street-which is one block south of the 4 way stop.
If only passing by the library please note the memorial garden in front. The large bell was donated by the Eddie and Avis Diesburg family, and it originally was used at St. Boniface School.
Those of you who have visited this summer and commented on the flower gardens in front of the library, they were maintained by two 4-H members, Lance Brown and Michael Tupper. For those of you that asked the huge purple bush is a multiplying aster, slips from it will be available Spring of 2013.
This summer (2012) the extremely small nuisance strip of grass between the flag pole and the building was removed as well as the smelly yew bushes next to the building. We now have a wonderful bike parking plot for the kids with bikes and Mom's with strollers, it is close to the entrance but not in the doorway. The bench will be put back next to the building and will be in the shade.
