Eat Out to Read

Eat Out to Read events allow community members to enjoy a delicious meal knowing that a generous percentage of all sales will be donated to the Iowa City Public Library Friends Foundation!

In addition to the generosity of local restaurants, retail businesses also participate in supporting the Library through Community Give Day’s where a portion of daily or weekly sales are donated to the Library. Community Give Day events are also listed on this page.

Thank you for your interest in supporting the ICPL. The ICPL Friends Foundation’s vision is to inspire every member of our community to support the Library as a Library user, volunteer, or donor. Our mission is to strengthen the Iowa City Public Library through fundraising, advocacy, and promotion of its valuable resources. To learn more visit supportICPL.org.
