Koza Family Teen Center

The Teen Center is a space just for teens grades 7-12 (ages 12-18) to hangout on the second floor of the Library. It’s open whenever the Library is open.

Come during Tech Times to play video games on the big screen and check out laptops.

Teen Activity Group

Calling all people in grades 7-12, the Iowa City Public Library Teen Activity Group (TAG) is looking for new members! We meet monthly during the school year to discuss books, plan upcoming events, and talk about what's going on in our lives.

Want to make a difference in your Library? Maybe you just love reading and making new friends? Contact ICPL’s Teen Services Librarian at (319) 887-6076 or via email at to join us.
