Posted by Meredith on August 30, 2018 - 10:35am


With the new school year underway, now is the perfect time to check your wallet, purse and backpack to make sure you have the most important school supply item: your Iowa City Public Library Card!

September is Library Card Sign Up Month. If you don’t have a Library Card, now is the time to get one. Use your Library Card to check out books, movies, videogames, framed art, laptop computers, and music; access databases; explore the Library’s digital collection, including eBooks and audio books, and digital magazines; and get connected to the Library’s on-site public computer stations. You can also use your Library Card to download movies from Kanopy and access "The New York Times."

Cards are available for Iowa residents of any age. Pre-apply online at icpl.org/cards or complete the entire process in person at the first floor Help Desk whenever the Library is open. You can also apply for a card on the Library’s Bookmobile. Visit icpl.org/bookmobile for our latest Bookmobile schedule.

A photo ID and Iowa address verification are required for all options.

If you’ve lost your card, we’ll replace it for free all month long!

For more information, visit www.icpl.org or call the Library at 319-356-5200.
