Drake Community Library

The Drake Community Library Board of Trustees has launched a capital campaign to raise $90,000 to implement a landscaping design plan for the library grounds! This plan will incorporate the best of the established prairie plantings with professionally landscaped beds and eco-friendly features to provide a sustainable and inviting environment for all.

The new $9.5 million 26,000 square ft. Drake Community Library opened in November 2009, located at Park Street and Fifth Avenue, adjacent to the historic downtown business district and Grinnell College. Total dollars were raised through a unique funding partnership between private donors, businesses, foundations, corporations, civic groups, the City of Grinnell and Vision Iowa.
