Celebrating the Cochran Park Library Kiosk!

You're invited to a special celebration for the Library's newest addition, the Cochran Park Library Kiosk! Join us for a fun-filled neighborhood party at Cochran Park, 100 S 21st Street, Council Bluffs, on July 12 from 5-7 p.m.

What to Expect

  • Food truck and Snow Cone Truck: Grab dinner and a frozen treat and enjoy it in the park!
  • Fun and Games: The Recreation on the Move truck will be on site with yard games and the big blue blocks.
  • Specialty Library Cards: Pick up a special "Cochran Park" library card to commemorate the day.

You might have noticed the new shelter along the FIRST AVE trail at 22nd Street in Cochran Park. This shelter will house the Cochran Park Library Kiosk, which will hold 235 books featuring a mix of youth, young adult, and adult fiction and nonfiction titles. The kiosk allows for easy browsing with a color-coded system: yellow for youth materials, red for young adult materials, blue for adult nonfiction, and green for adult fiction. Additionally, there will be a selection of DVDs.

The Cochran Park Library Kiosk is not just a new location; it's a new way to access books. Operating like a vending machine, you can now check out library materials 24/7. Simply enter your library card and PIN, make your selection, and the item will be dispensed to you. It's a convenient and exciting new way to bring books to your neighborhood.

The Cochran Park Library Kiosk exists thanks to generous contributions from the Iowa West Foundation, the Community Foundation for Western Iowa, the Friends of the Council Bluffs Library, and the Council Bluffs Public Library Foundation.

Don't miss out on the Library's fun and educational programming in Cochran Park this summer. These programs, held on Friday mornings, are a great way to enjoy the park and check out the new kiosk. You can find the Library's full schedule of events for more details.

We hope you can join us in celebrating the new Cochran Park Library Kiosk on Friday, July 12, from 5 to 7 p.m. Walk on over, enjoy the festivities, and be among the first to explore the new kiosk!
