New Website Coming Soon

by Alyssa Hanson on June 8th, 2017

Look for our new website on the morning of Tuesday, June 13th!

Some changes: New materials and links to digital content will now be highlighted on the front page. A big change will be the navigation menu, which will move from the side to along the top header area. The menu has also been reorganized. Along with this, each page has also been simplified to make it more readable.

We know a lot of people are using mobile devices to visit our site and so responsive design was also a large priority. The content has been designed to look good on phones, tablets, desktops computers, and everything in between.

We will continue working on improvements and will have a feedback form for comments, questions, and concerns as soon as we release. Questions before then? Feel free to contact us either through phone at (319) 356-5200 or online by chat or email on our Ask Us page.
