Using the Library

The West Branch Public Library strives to serve the community of West Branch, Iowa.  The library has over 20,000 physical items for you to borrow, including books for all ages, DVDs, books on audio CD, music CDs, magazines, and large print books.  Some of our rarer collections include cake pans, board games, puzzles, and Cricut cartridges.  The library also has access to over 10,000 electronic books and audiobooks through Bridges, our online ebook consortium.  We have recently added streaming movies and educational videos through Kanopy.   Library cards are free for everyone.

The library also has many programs and events as well as services such as printing/copying/faxing, usable space in the community room, and free wi-fi.
