4pm is Iowa Time!

Every day at 4pm, IRIS brings you original programming specific to Iowa. Monday, it's Iowa Salute - with information for and about Iowa veterans and their families. Tuesday, it's Access Iowa - filled with information from the Iowa Department for the Blind, and other articles related to blindness and vision loss. Every Wednesday, you'll hear the latest edition of Cityview. Thursday, you can make your shopping list along with us on Midweek Shopping Cart. Every Friday, we go Cover to Cover with books about Iowa written by Iowans. Saturdays, we're In Focus with a variety of Iowa Publications like Iowa Source, The Iowan and the Iowa History Journal. Sundays, we bring you Polk County Senior filled with news from the Polk County Senior Bulletin.

IRIS Newsletters, Program Schedules and Program Descriptions are available in Braille, Large Print and Audio formats. Call the IRIS office to request the format that works for you - 515-243-6833.
