As more people opt for experiences over things, the Iowa City Public Library is pleased to present Discovery Kits, a collection of hands-on activities that allow patrons to “try before they buy” something new.

During the month of March, the Iowa City Public Library will host classes that highlight the addition of Wacom Intuos graphics tablets to its selection of Digital Media Lab equipment.

The Iowa City Public Library will commemorate Black History Month with several special programs, live performances, storytimes, and movies.

The Iowa City Book Festival, in partnership with the Iowa City Public Library, will host a series of events designed to bring the authors of books about politics and social engagement to the library to discuss the ideas in those books: LIT Talks.
