DES MOINES, Iowa—The State Library of Iowa has announced that the Musser Public Library has met the conditions for state accreditation.
Achieving accreditation requires a significant, ongoing local commitment to high quality library services. The Musser Public Library has been recognized for its efforts in all areas of library operations: governance and funding, staffing, library collection, services, public relations, access, and facilities. The accreditation status began July 1 and is valid through June 30, 2025.
“We commend the director and board of trustees of the Musser Public Library and the city of Muscatine for this achievement and their commitment to excellence in public library services for their community,” said State Librarian Michael Scott.

Musser Public Library Director Robert Fiedler credited many people for contributing to the library’s success: “Thanks to the library staff and board of trustees for all their hard work and time. And most of all, thank you to our patrons, who make us one of the most amazing libraries in Iowa. We’ll continue to do our best to serve our community,” Fiedler said.

Of Iowa’s 543 public libraries, 403 are accredited. Iowa’s accredited public libraries are recognized for being responsive to their communities and for exhibiting excellence in library services.

More than two-thirds of all Iowans have active public library cards. Iowa libraries play key roles in workforce and economic development, lifelong learning and e-government activities. Iowans use their libraries to find jobs, do homework, locate a good book to read, research medical conditions, access government information, and more.
