The Iowa City Public Library (ICPL) will adjust the Phase 3 guidelines of its reopening plan beginning Friday, April 2, 2021. Until further notice, computer sessions will be limited to 30 minutes and browsing will be limited to 15 minutes.

Local Libraries LIT (Listen, Initiate, Talk), is a unique partnership between the public libraries in Coralville, Iowa City, and North Liberty, and the University of Iowa Libraries with support from The Tuesday Agency.

Phase 4 of the Library’s reopening plan welcomes patrons indoors for browsing.

Express Access provides the public with an opportunity to come into the building again for limited visits.

The Iowa City Public Library Bookmobile can once again be found on the streets of Iowa City. ICPL staff have missed connecting with community members on the Bookmobile and can't wait to see your (masked) faces once again!

The Iowa City Public Library will be closed Friday, Feb. 26, 2021, for Staff Inservice Day
