The JKPL, in conjunction with the State Library of Iowa, is happy to announce a new resource:  The People's Law Library of Iowa!  Find it on our Online Reference page.

The People’s Law Library of Iowa is meant to be an easy-to-understand, basic information website about the law. The assumption is that the user has no prior knowledge of law or legal topics. This website can be a good starting point for understanding some legal issues. Note:  The People’s Law Library is not legal advice, nor is it a replacement for a lawyer. The contents should be read as providing basic, introductory information only. 

Quilt Display & Sale: through December 23

The JKPL is partnering with the Dyersville Layette Ladies to share with you the work and talent of the Layette Ladies as well as raise some funds for both organizations. Several layette, lap, and larger quilts are on display at the library and can be viewed on the attached page.

  • These quilts are available to purchase and prices range from $20.00—$60.00, depending on size. 
  • Proceeds will be split between the Layette Ladies group and the JKPL. 
  • Purchases can be made either in person at the library or via curbside service.
