What's New @ The Library
After careful consideration, the library has made the difficult decision to be closed until further notice. We will be suspending all youth and adult programming, as well as large meeting room use. For more information about the library and the community, click the link below.
Digital Library Card
Due to the Marshalltown Public Library being closed to the public, we are now offering people the opportunity to sign up for a digital library card.
NOTE: If you already have a Marshalltown Public Library card, you do not need a digital card to access digital materials. This is a new way for people to sign up for a library card without being present in a building.
A digital library card will work as a temporary, three-month card that will allow you to use our digital materials, including:
- eBooks and eAudiobooks via Bridges
- eBooks, eAudiobooks, comics, movies, TV shows, and music via Hoopla
- eBooks and eAudiobooks for kids and teens on Tumblebooks
- online databases or other resources such as The New York Times.
Some digital materials, including all streaming video and downloadable eBooks and eAudiobooks, are only available to residents of Marshalltown, rural Marshall County, Haverhill, and Ferguson.
