Just in time for the holidays, the Iowa City Public Library will host the Fourth Annual Arts & Crafts Bazaar and Winter Book Sale from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5.
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 take place in the hallway outside Meeting Room A.
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. For every $10 spent at the bazaar, shoppers receive an entry for amazing door prizes. Winners do not need to be present to win.
A children’s craft will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon in Meeting Room D.
Proceeds from the Arts & Crafts Bazaar benefit the Iowa City Public Library Friends Foundation, which supports the Summer Reading Program and other Library programs and collections.
Both Library events coincide with the Eastside Artists Annual Show at the Masonic Building, 312 College St., and Iowa City Downtown District Holiday Open House. Make a day of your trip downtown and get a head start on your holiday shopping.
