Tell us if this sounds familiar.
You stop by the Iowa City Public Library to pick up a book – maybe it’s one you had on hold or you find something after browsing for a few minutes – but then you decide to check out what’s new in the music collection. Maybe your spouse calls to ask you to pick up a movie for the weekend. Perhaps one of your kids texts you to remind them they have a book report due in a week and they need a book to read. Or maybe your few minutes of browsing turned in to discovering five titles you must check out today.
No matter how it happens, you find yourself in line for the Help Desk, struggling to hold on to the books you have piled in your arms.
Help is on the way, in the form of our new book bags. The “Read More Books” bag is made of bright blue durable canvas perfect for toting Library materials to and from your home. And, at only $1 per bag, they are easy to replace when you accidentally leave one in your car. You can even stock up and use them to “wrap” some of this year’s holiday presents. They’re cheaper than gift bags and better for the environment.
The “Read More Books” bags are available for purchase at the Help Desk on the Library’s first floor.
