Using the Library

The West Branch Public Library serves the community of West Branch, Iowa and rural Cedar County.

The library has over 20,000 physical items for you to borrow, including books for all ages, DVDs, audiobooks, music CDs, magazines, and large print books.  Some of our more interesting collections include cake pans, board games, puzzles, and Cricut cartridges!

Reserved items are in the entryway for self-serve, no-contact pickup.  If you can’t make it to the library, we also offer delivery!

The library also has access to over 10,000 electronic books and audiobooks through Bridges, our online ebook consortium. 

We have also recently added streaming movies and educational videos through Kanopy.

Library cards are free for everyone!
