Jefferson Public Library

 We invite you to spend a few moments looking at our library Web site. With help from the State Library of Iowa and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation we are able to create a place on the Web where you, our customers, can explore, learn and get help with all your information needs.

2013 Friend of the YearThe Friends of the Jefferson Public Library honored Bessie McClelland Sayre as the library’s “Friend of the Year” for 2013.  Bessie received a certificate and thank you gift at a reception held in her honor on Thursday, October 10.  Each year since 1997, the Friends of the Library have honored an outstanding library volunteer.  Sayre’s artistic talents are often seen in the children’s library, where she creates wall and ceiling decorations for monthly or seasonal themes.  She also makes decorations for the annual Halloween event, children’s summer reading programs, and the library float in the Bell Tower Festival parades.  These are just some of the tasks Sayre has done at the library.  She has volunteered at the library for over fifteen years.
