Press Releases

The City of Iowa City will require all visitors to City facilities to wear a mask while inside public buildings beginning Friday, Aug. 6, 2021.

We’re looking for candidates who are involved and interested in the arts community in some way — artists, framers, instructors, students, gallery employees, collectors and serious enthusiasts — to join the Committee.

The Iowa City Public Library celebrates the life and legacy of former library director, Lolly (Parker) Eggers with a new digital exhibit, “Lolly’s Legacy.” 

On July 1, the Iowa City Public Library will move to Phase 5a of the reopening plan to expand Library hours, remove the time limits for browsing, extend time limits for computer access, and lift building and Bookmobile capacity restrictions.

The Iowa City Public Library now has Chromebook/hotspot bundles available for checkout, made possible by a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Johnson County.The Chromebooks can be used to browse the Internet or use Google Drive.
