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.
