At Kothe Memorial Library everyone can enjoy their favorite author's new fiction or nonfiction books in different formats, glance at a variety of magazines, research and learn about a new topic and check out new DVD releases. If the material is not on site we use the State of Iowa Libraries Online (SILO) to obtain it for you at no cost. Our library staff strives to support lifelong reading and learning.
