ICPL’s Stories in the Park begins June 4

The Iowa City Public Library’s summertime outdoor reading series, Stories in the Park, will be held from 10:30 to 11 a.m. June 4 through August 3 at the following locations:

  • Monday at Willow Creek Park, 1177 Teg Dr.
  • Wednesday at Wetherby Park, 2400 Taylor Dr.
  • Friday at Mercer Park, 2701 Bradford Dr.

There won’t be Stories in the Park or Bookmobile service on Wednesday, July 4.

Stories in the Park is a mix of traditional storytimes and special performances. Children, parents and caregivers should remember to bring their Library Card in order to check out books and DVDs from the Bookmobile. Anyone who doesn’t have a Library Card can sign up at icpl.org/cards and pick-up their new card on the Bookmobile.

In the event of rain, the Monday and Wednesday storytimes will be held at the Library and the Friday storytimes will be cancelled. However, the Bookmobile will still travel to the parks, rain or shine, so visitors can check out items. In instances of severe weather, Bookmobile services will be canceled. If this happens, information will be shared on the Library’s website: icpl.org.
