The Iowa City Public Library will open at 9 a.m. on Saturday, November 17, so individuals with autism can enjoy the Library in a calm and welcoming environment.

ICPL’s Special Access Browsing Hour is open to individuals of all ages on the autism spectrum, as well as their family members and caregivers.

November’s special access browsing hour will include a visit from Miss Patty, dino expert from the Putnam Museum in Davenport. She will share the latest dinosaur facts and paleontology discoveries as part of our DINOvember celebration.

The Teen Center will be open for teens in 7th through 12th grades to play computer and video games. Therapy animals also wander through the Library giving friendship and support. The Library will use natural lighting throughout the building to accommodate those with light sensitivity.

ICPL will open to the general public at 10 a.m. For more information, call 319-356-5200.
