Also, thanks to more recent funds from the Pocahontas County Foundation, we have enjoyed an enriching visit from

Fonziba Drums, have a fun, new Makerspace area, and a comfortable new seating area for our patrons to enjoy! 

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
