Press ReleaseICPL’S Summer Reading Program, celebrating 125 Years of Stories, to begin June 1


We are excited to announce our 125th Anniversary Summer Reading Program, which will include both in-person and virtual activities.

 The Summer Reading Program will run from June 1 through September 1 - 2021 and is for all ages from babies through adults. Registration opens on Tuesday, June 1 and can be completed by returning your gamecard in-person at the Library, at our Bookmobile, or online at srp.icpl.org

The goal of the Summer Reading Program this year is simple – let’s see if Iowa City can celebrate 125 years of stories by reading 125,000 books. 

When you complete your registration, you will receive a game card to track your progress towards the goal. Participants can begin turning in their game cards for prizes on June 7.  

All in-person activities will have limited-capacity to encourage social-distancing and safety precautions. Masks will be required. 

If you have questions about the program, including help registering for the program online, use our contact form at srp.icpl.org or call 319-356-5200.
