If you are spending part or all of your summer vacation at home this year, you might want to check out the great new display that went up this morning on the 2nd floor.  STAYCATION contains all sorts of books on great things to do in Iowa, Johnson County, Iowa City, or just in your own home.

Design a great road trip with OddBall Iowa – a Guide to some Really Strange Places by Jerome Pohlen.

 

 

Scare yourself silly by visiting some of the places in Chad Lewis & Terry Fisk’s The Iowa Road Guide to Haunted Locations.

 

 

 

Or explore the Iowa that you never knew with Lori Erickson’s  Iowa: Off the Beaten Path.

 

 

 

If it looks like the weather is going to get bad, try learning all about it with  Restless Skys: The Ultimate Weather Book by Paul Douglas.

 

 

 

 

Or make a plan for when the weather breaks.  We have guides for planning a walk, taking a hike, or paddling your cares away.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’d rather spend your time closer to home, how about having a home film festival with movies you missed?

 

Or learning a new game?

 

 

Or having a back yard picnic?

 

There are all sorts of things to do in Iowa, and we can help you find them!   If you’d rather just spend your time reading a good book, we have a few of those too.  Let ICPL help make your summer great!
