The Keokuk Public Library enriches lives by providing resources and technology and creating a safe and comfortable space in which to satisfy curiosity, inspire lifelong learning and celebrate the area’s past, present and future.
Keokuk library service began in 1863 with formation of a subscription library. In 1883, construction of a library building, located at 3rd and Main, was completed. The library operated on a stock-holder and subscriber basis until 1894, when it became a free public library.
The present library building was completed in 1962. The upper level was renovated in 2002, and the addition and lower level renovations were completed in 2006.
Many exciting changes took place with an addition and renovation, as you will see when touring the building. Not only did we gain an elevator, allowing us to open part of the lower level to the public, but you will find quiet reading areas, another community meeting room, beautiful artwork, and space for our friends in the Community Cultural Partnership.
