The Fonda Public Library's collection can be viewed online thanks to funds from the Pocahontas County Foundation.
To view our online catalog, click on the Catalog tab above. Also, thanks to more recent funds from the Pocahontas County Foundation, we have a beautiful new circulation desk & computer, a new thru-wall Book Drop, and a new iPad for our children's computer section! Many thanks to the Foundation for all they do for the people of this county!

The Fonda Public Library's Digital Newspaper Archives were supported in part, by the State Historical Society of Iowa, Historical Resource Development Program.  Click here to search our local newspaper archives: Newell-Fonda Digital Newspaper Archives
