Books and Periodicals
The materials you need for work, school, or fun!
The Library has a dynamic and constantly growing collection of fiction, non-fiction, and reference books for all ages. We also have an ever-growing collection of large-print books. The Library subscribes to a number of popular magazines and newspapers, as well as special materials such as the Value Line Investment Survey. If you don't find what you need on our shelves, our membership in the Rolling Prairie Library System allows us access to virtually any materials you may need.
Our children's department has books and magazines for children from birth through sixth grade. Board books, picture books, and chapter books (including Accelerated Reader titles) are among the fiction offerings, and in our Juvenile Non-Fiction area, kids can find everything they'll need for homework assignments, research projects, and just for fun!
Looking for some light reading? In our adult department, you'll find popular fiction, including romance, mysteries, westerns, science fiction, and inspirational fiction. The fiction area also includes classic works of literature and some authors you may not have tried before.
The non-fiction area includes books on any subject you might want to learn more about. How-to books, cookbooks, history books, and materials for homeschoolers are just a few examples of the materials you'll find.
Magazines and newspapers are available in the periodicals area. Titles such as Car & Driver, Woman's Day, Fortune, and Newsweek are included in our collection, as well as a number of area and national newspapers.
Young Adult Materials
Young Adults will find some really great reading in our Young Adult fiction area. Popular authors such as Lois Duncan, Jane Yolen, and Gary Paulsen can be found here, and more. Popular teen magazines are also located in the Young Adult area.
Encyclopedias, dictionaries, atlases, telephone books, and biographical sources are just a few of the helpful resources you'll find in the Reference department. These books cannot be checked out, so we can be sure they are always available to answer your questions when you need them.
