Library Expansion 2006
In the summer of 2006 our library expanded to the small room of the Community Building--this doubled our size and made it much easier to use the library's facilities.
Story Hour with Ida County Extension Office
Kathy Schmidt from the Ida County Extension Office came to our library on Thursday, June 28, 2007 and read books, helped the kids make bookmarks, and had a special birthday cake in honor of Iowa State University's 150th anniversary. We had a great time during her visit!

Easter Egg Hunt 2008
About 60 kids and adults bundled up and met at the library for the Easter Egg Hunt at the Arthur Ball Field and Veteran's Memorial Park. After finding their eggs, they met back at the library for a snack and movie. This was sponsored by the Arthur City Council and Arthur Public Library.
Summer Reading Program 2008, "Catch the Reading Bug"
During the summer of 2008 the Arthur Library kids read a record-breaking number of books! Story Hours were held in June and July and final story hours were held on July 31 (with Verdean Kruse), August 7 (with Kim Davis and Karen Frank), and our final awards and field trip to Moorehead Park with Steve Hummel on August 14. The pictures show what we've been doing this summer!
