DES MOINES — The Sibley Public Library has met the conditions for state accreditation as outlined in “In Service to Iowa: Public Library Standards Sixth Edition,” the State Library of Iowa has announced.

Should the school charge money for breakfasts, which about 60% of students get, it would generate about $25,000.
Eighteen teachers with the VIBE program, who do not work in District 518 buildings, will need to be put on leave or terminated.

Achieving accreditation requires a significant, ongoing local commitment to high quality library services. The Sibley Public Library has been recognized for its efforts in all areas of library operations including governance and funding, staffing, library collection, services, public relations, access and facilities.

Accreditation status begins July 1, 2022, and is valid through June 30, 2025.

Of Iowa’s 543 public libraries, 403 — including the Sibley Public Library — are accredited. Iowa’s accredited public libraries are recognized for being responsive to their communities and for exhibiting excellence in their provision of library services.

Accredited libraries receive a Certificate of Accreditation and a higher rate of compensation through the State Library’s Enrich Iowa program.
