The second Iowa City Public Library Friends Foundation Arts & Crafts Bazaar will be held Saturday, December 7, and the Library is seeking donations. Items should be new, handmade arts and crafts that are easily moved and transported by volunteers. Popular items last year included knitted or crocheted hats, scarves, and blankets, greeting and post cards with an Iowa or Iowa City theme, ornaments, jewelry, ceramic bowls and mugs, small quilts and wall hangings, children’s toys and baby items.
Donations may be dropped off at the Library, 123 S. Linn St, any time between now and December 5. More information and a donor form is available at: http://www.icpl.org/artsandcrafts/ or call 356-5200 during hours the Library is open. Proceeds from the sale will support the Iowa City Public Library Friends Foundation’s gift to Library summer reading programs.
