This is a great place to start your search for information

Search engines are a fine place to start a search of the Internet, but often the results are unsatisfactory. Besides, the Internet isn't the only place to find information. Our library has gathered together some great resources for you to use to find the information you need.


  • Access Digitized Newspapers from Storm Lake.
  • Use EBSCOhost to access auto repair, research databases, magazine and newspaper articles.  Please contact library staff for the user name and password for this resource.
  • Use Iowa Locator or WorldCat to find books, CDs, DVDs and other items in libraries
  • Use HealthInfoIowa to start your search for health information
  • Use LearningExpress to help you learn a new skill or brush up on something you learned long ago.  This database has access to test preparation too. You may need to use your library card number to gain access.


The subject guides give you a great place to find information on travel, sports, consumer goods and more.


Iowa Heritage Digital Collections and Iowa Publications Online can help you dig deep into all things Iowa.
