Our Mission

Friends supports the Waterloo Public Library's services and programs, promotes literacy through outreach programs that encourage and enhance reading throughout the community and conducts fundraising activities to assist with library programs and projects.

The Friends Used Book Shop offers like-new, used books for the entire family at great prices! Come in and browse anytime during library hours. Purchases may be made at the first floor circulation desk during hours the bookstore is not staffed.

Staffed hours:

The book shop is open during current library service hours. At this time, volunteers are not being asked to staff the shop.

This shop is managed and staffed by volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the volunteer services manager at 319.291.4476.
