What's Happening During the Closure?
New York Times Online
You asked for it! Ames Public Library now offers free access to The New York Times online! Connecting you with news and information sources is more important than ever.
Did someone say free books? Kids can pick up a free book along with their Grab & Go lunch from Ames schools thanks to the Ames Public Library Friends Foundation, United Way of Story County, and Ames Community School District!
Little Free Libraries
Working with Raising Readers in Story County, the Ames Public Library Friends Foundation is now donating books leftover from its recent Library Book Sale to select Little Free Libraries in Ames. We have taken all recommended precautions to share these materials safely. Be sure to practice social distancing and hand washing when you visit a Little Free Library!
