Use the Library

Everyone at North Liberty Library wants to make sure that you have the ability to manage your account easily, whether you’re in the library or at home. Your online account allows you to do a variety of things from your personal computer or phone – browse our catalog, request items, reserve a room, download eBooks and digital magazines, and much more quickly and easily.


We welcome donations of gently used books, DVDs, and puzzles. Books not added to the collection may go to our book sales. Media and books should be in good condition. We are unable to accept musty, moldy books.

Items we do not accept include: damaged books, encyclopedias, textbooks, cassette tapes, video tapes, LP records, and Reader’s Digest condensed books.

Donations of more than two bags (approximately 15 books) must be arranged in advance with library staff.
