The Stanton Public has been in operation since 1941. It was recognized entity of the City of Stanton, Iowa ( a southwest community of 714 people), and is managed by a five-member board of trustees. Four of the trustees are appointed by the Stanton mayor and one trustee is appointed by the Stanton School District. All trustees are approved by the Stanton City Council. The board is responsible for hiring a certified librarian, who is responsible for the day-to-day operation of the facility.
