The Mount Pleasant Public Library has a local history room full of historical materials that can aid you in your search for the history of Mt. Pleasant, the surrounding areas, and even some genealogical research! The library is also lucky to have the Mount Pleasant News digitized, and patrons can access that resource at home. Go to this link: Digital Archives of Southeast Iowa for access.
The library also has in-house access to Ancestry. Patrons must be in the library to access this resource.
Please call the library, and ask for Kayleigh, at (319) 385-1490 for more information.
