ICPL 101: Events

Tuesday  Apr 6, 2021 - 7:00 pm

The Iowa City Public Library has dozens of free events each month for all ages, even during the pandemic.  Do you know how to find the events that will interest you?  We'll explain how to use our online calendar to narrow down events and get registered for Zoom links to live events or for take-and-make craft kits.  Register here.

ICPL 101: Catalog Tips

Wednesday, Apr 7, 2021 - 7:00 pm

Our catalog is more important than ever, with the limited browsing in the library building.  Could you use some tips to help you find books, movies, and music that you'll love?  We'll start with a demonstration of searching and placing a hold in the catalog, and then we'll dig deeper into seeing what's New and On Order, navigating series, browsing virtually, and finding read-alikes similar to other books you've enjoyed. Register here.

ICPL 101: Ebooks

Thursday, Apr 8, 2021 - 7:00 pm

With a smartphone, tablet, desktop computer, or eReader, local residents can enjoy free digital books and digital audiobooks from the Iowa City Public Library!  Join us for a basic overview of where to browse our ebooks, how to decide which interface is right for you (the free Libby app, the Overdrive app, or a web browser), and how to navigate around in an ebook. Register here.
