Spring Breakers! Time to Head to the Library

by on March 12th, 2013

Spring Break officially begins Monday, March 18 for students in the Iowa City school systems, but everybody knows it really starts the Friday before, once the final bell rings. This year, ICPL is offering a range of events for children and teens, including a concert, garden party, and screenings of the final Twilight movies.
