For Adults

Programs and services especially for adults.

Several programs are available for our adult patrons. Contact director@fredericksburg.lib.ia.us for details.

  • Adult book discussion group
    Meetings are every six weeks on a Tuesday evening from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. The book discussion group reads a common book and then the members are invited to join in a discussion of that book. This group also participates in the "All Iowa Reads" programs each year. The public is invited to join the group at anytime.  

 

  • Computer Classes/ Internet Classes
    Beginning and intermediate computer and Internet classes are offered throughout the year. The times are determined by public interest and demand. The classes are free of charge, with the exception of the CD's to store your information. Classes will be advertised in the local newspaper, "Fredericksburg Review".  Call the library for details, to request a class or for more information. 

 

  • Reading Contests
    Adult reading contests are held throughout the year.  Each participant competes against themselves to increase their reading skills and share the enjoyment of reading with the other readers. As each contest comes closer details will be given here. 

 

  • Interlibrary loans
    Borrowing books from other libraries is available during the entire year.
    SILO  http://z3950.silo.lib.ia.us/cgi-bin/zform.CGI?SILO This SILO site searches a single database that contains the card catalog records of all participating libraries in the state of Iowa. If you find an item you would like to borrow, print off the information, and give it to your librarian. Your request will be processed and your requested material(s) will arrive promptly.  There is no cost related to borrowing items from other libraries, we are happy to accept donations to cover the cost of shipping. The library will call you when the item arrives. PLEASE remember to pick up the item(s) as soon as possible.
