About the Stanton Public Library

Jerry Gilliland, the library director, is a certified librarian and has managed the Stanton Public Library since 1998. Under his direction, the library became certified by the State of Iowa in 2002. It currently is open to the public 20 hours per week; employs one librarian; provides a collection of 8,375 books, 22 periodicals, and 660 audio-video pieces; and offers various programs/outreach services (internet training, summer reading programs, children‟s hour, busing of students, etc.) to the community. Approximately 4,000 people use the library each year and 6,000 books/videos are circulated annually. The Stanton Public Library, in conjunction with the City of Stanton and Stanton Friends, built the new 4,574 square-foot library in conjunction of the 25,350 square-foot multipurpose facility, known as the Stanton Viking Center. The city-owned facility is constructed on city property (501 Elliott Street), located within a residential neighborhood across the street from Stanton Community Schools and the Green Belt Walking Trail. The library utilizes the general lobby and public restrooms at the building‟s entrance.
