Remote Services

Please note this page is being updated as library staff adapt library services to accommodate our closure to the public. New resources may be added as we become aware of them. Thank you for your understanding and patience. 

Closed to the Public

Cedar Falls Public Library is closed to the public March 17, 2020 through (at least) April 10, 2020. During this time, we are currently planning to staff our building in order to provide some remote services on a reduced basis.


Our public Wi-Fi is available 24/7 and is accessible from our parking lot. Please connect your devices to CFPL-PUBLIC and agree to our Terms and Conditions to get online.
