Press ReleasePed Mall doors open; Linn Street doors to close Aug. 12

Crew members for the Ped Mall Renovation Project made book lovers happy today (Friday, Aug. 9; also known as National Book Lovers Day) when they finished the paving in front of the Iowa City Public Library’s west entrance. Because of this, the Library’s Ped Mall doors are now open!

The new pavers look great and will be so much safer to walk on when it's rainy or snowing. Now new pavers need to be installed in front of the Iowa City Public Library’s Linn Street entrance. Because of this, our Linn Street doors will close on Monday, Aug. 12. They will remain closed through Wednesday afternoon. Signs will be posted directing foot traffic to the Library’s Ped Mall entrance.

We apologize for the inconvenience and than you for your patience. The Ped Mall is going to look great when everything is finished!
