General Information - UPDATED NOVEMBER 20, 2020

Welcome to the Newton Public Library!

Library Hours

The Library’s goal is to create an environment that balances our need to provide quality essential services to our community, provide our employees with a safe working environment, and do our part to prevent the spread of Covid-19. In an effort to implement social distancing practices, in-person library hours have been temporarily reduced.

In the meantime, library staff are offering a mix of in-person browsing days, curbside pick-up service for library materials, public computer appointments, and appointments for notary service and new library card registrations.

If you would like to make an appointment for notary service, new library card registration, or to make a computer appointment, please call 641-792-4108.
