Just in time for the holidays, the Iowa City Public Library will host the Eighth Annual Arts & Crafts Bazaar and Holiday Book Sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7. Thanks to the generous donations of local artists and crafters, shoppers will find a wide selection of unique gifts from quilts and knitted items to jewelry, holiday ornaments, and more.

The craft bazaar will be held in meeting rooms A, B and C at the Library, 123 S. Linn St. The used book sale will be held in Meeting Room D. Shoppers can name their own price all day at the book sale.

Proceeds from the Arts & Crafts Bazaar and book sale benefit the Iowa City Public Library Friends Foundation, which supports the Summer Reading Program and other Library programs and collections.

If you are a crafter and would like to donate items to the bazaar, there’s still time! Anyone wishing to donate items may bring them to the Library during open hours before Wednesday, December 4. All items must be handmade and be delivered with an ICPL Arts and Crafts Bazaar donation form (available at the Library and online at icpl.org/arts-and-crafts).
