Sheldon, Iowa — Libraries. They’re all about books, but they are more than just traditional books. That’s the message that they want you to remember, especially during this week, which is National Library Week. The theme this year is “Libraries Lead.”
We talked to Sheldon Public Library Director Nicole Morgan, who tells us about all the things the library has to offer.
She says in the future they plan to offer downloadable magazines, and you’ll be able to use a device in the library on which to read the magazines.
She tells us they also have programs.
Morgan says they are trying something new for a year — no overdue book fees.
She also says that renovation continues at the Sheldon Public Library.
Morgan tells us the funding for the renovations comes from the library foundation, tax revenue, and donations from businesses and individuals. She says the project should be complete by early fall.
For more information, you can call the Sheldon Public Library at 712-324-2442 or stop by when they’re open at 925 Fourth Avenue, just south of the Community Services Center parking lot in downtown Sheldon.
