The New Grimes Public Library – A Hub for Everyone

by Adam Bunge, 2024 Grimes Chamber and Economic Development Board Chair

February Newsletter Article

I am excited to write my first newsletter article and recognize the grand opening of the new Grimes Public Library, our community's newest WIN. As board chair of Grimes Chamber and Economic Development, I believe that libraries play a vital role in fostering education, promoting literacy, and enriching the cultural fabric of our neighborhoods.

The new Library is more than just a collection of books; it is a hub for knowledge and connection. With its wide array of resources, including books, e-books, audiobooks, and digital databases, the library offers something for everyone. Whether you're a student seeking research materials, a parent looking for children's story time sessions, or a professional in need of career development resources, the Grimes Public Library has you covered.

As Grimes residents and parents of three toddler/school-aged kids, my wife and I have enjoyed taking advantage of the diverse options. Since before our oldest was walking, we've frequented the former Grimes Public Library and we are ecstatic about the new Grimes Public Library as it truly has something for everyone!

In addition to its extensive collection, the Grimes Public Library will host a variety of community programs and events. From author talks and book clubs to workshops and children's activities, there will always be something exciting happening at the library. These events not only entertain and educate but also bring our community closer together.

As members of Grimes Chamber and Economic Development, it's essential for us to support initiatives that enhance our community's well-being and prosperity. Here are a few ways you can support the Library:

  1. Spread the Word: Encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to visit the library and take advantage of its resources and programs.
  2. Volunteer: Consider volunteering your time and expertise to help with library events or initiatives.
  3. Donate: Whether it's books, funds, or your professional services, your contributions can make a meaningful difference to the library and its patrons.

I invite you to join me in celebrating the opening of the Grimes Public Library. Let's come together to support this invaluable resource and ensure that it continues to thrive for generations to come.

Thank you for your support.
