AFTER 33 YEARS IRMS TO CLOSE
It is with sadness we report that after more than 33 years of service, IRMS will close this summer. We were informed in January that support from the Iowa United Methodist Conference would end after the first quarter of this year. Based on projected income, our board of directors determined that we will be able to stay open through June 30, and then wrap up all the details of the business. Please know that through June 30, IRMS is still your full-service resource center, and there are still new resources in the pipeline! If your church’s subscription expires between July 31 and December 31, 2019, it is our intention be here to honor your subscription as long as we have the resources to do so.

IOWA RELIGIOUS MEDIA SERVICES
IRMS is an ecumenical lending library with over 10,000 DVD, VHS, audio, book, and other resources available for use by subscribers and renters. We are committed to providing religious media resources to assist with faith formation and growth of the whole person, including exploration of the Bible and religious issues.But even more valuable than our library of resources, is the IRMS staff, knowledgeable to guide you through the process of resource selection and use. By asking discerning questions about your group and your goal, and reviewing your borrowing history, they can significantly increase your satisfaction with the resources you receive and the success when you use them.We continue to build the library of religious media to serve our subscribers with up-to-date, high quality resources. Our collection also contains several “classic,” hard to find titles. Subscribing churches pay a nominal yearly fee and then borrow resources free of charge as often as they like. Those who do not choose to subscribe may rent resources for a weekly fee.
