IA Shares Delivery Service Suspended Indefinitely Beginning March 30 due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and with the majority of libraries now closed, the State Library of Iowa is suspending the IA Shares statewide delivery service for public libraries beginning today, March 30, 2020.
The service will be suspended indefinitely but will be resume as soon as the COVID-19 threat is under control and libraries begin to reopen.
The Menlo Public Library will host a Virtual Story time every Wednesday, beginning March 25th at 10:00 a.m., via Video Chat on Facebook Messenger. If you have not already given this a try, please message me on Facebook Messenger, or call me at the Menlo Library, 641-524-4201, if you are interested in joining the group.
