Perhaps one of our best kept secrets is the quality of service our libraries provide. Whether you're learning to read, reading to learn, or taking advantage of other services, you can't beat the dedicated service provided by the Corning and Prescott libraries.
Corning Library- With a collection of over 30,000 books, videos, DVD's books on tape and CDs, the Corning Public Library has been serving the area since 1923. In house items for patron use include internet-accessible computers, television, VCR and DVD player. Through the inter-library loan program, patrons can check out a book or get copies of magazine articles not available in the local library. Children have special programs at the library with a teen board, preschool story time, and summer reading program. You can join an adult book club. A staff member will deliver books to patrons who are unable to leave their home, and also reads weekly to residents at the nursing home. 641-322- 3866 603 9th Street, Corning.
Prescott Library - Beginning in 1982 the Prescott Library was started by a group of interested women and run by volunteers. Its home is in the Prescott City Hall and is open 5 days a week. A librarian is on duty 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday and Thursday as well as 1 to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays. The Prescott Library offers video tapes, books on tape, as well as books appropriate for all ages.
