The mission of the Marshalltown School Library Media program is to ensure that all students and staff become effective users of information so that they may become independent, lifelong learners, and to foster a love of reading and literature.

The Marshalltown Community School District Libraries follow a curriculum aligned with the American Association of School Librarians, the National Education Technology Standards, the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, and the Iowa Core Curriculum.


The Library operates under the policy that no student has the right to interfere with the learning of other students or the purpose of an activity; therefore, the following rules for patrons apply.

Students must:

PBIS is practiced in the library! Thank you for leaving your food and beverages outside!

Use of Materials

A student ID is requested to check out any materials and use computers. A student ID card is required to scan in/out of the library or when requesting a password reset.

Books from the general collection may be checked out for four weeks with privilege of renewal two times if there is no waiting list for the book.

Students may use computers, audio-visual items, and equipment in the library. Just ask!

Fine Policy

If a book or magazine is lost, the borrower must replace* it or pay a replacement fee. When a book is more than 90 days overdue, it will automatically turn to lost. Students who have overdue fines and/or books are asked to return materials or pay replacement fees as soon as possible so that other students may enjoy those resources.

The library accepts payment by cash or check at the library circulation desk.
