Spring Break Specials

by on March 14th, 2014

To celebrate the Iowa City Community School District’s upcoming spring break we are hosting a variety of School’s Out Specials designed for the family.

Tomorrow at 10:30 we are hosting a pet adoption storytime presented by the Friends of the Animal Center Foundation. Come by to learn about their new facility in progress and meet some animals in need of families.  Celebrate spring on the farm with Scott Koepke from New Pioneer’s Soilmates and Muddy Miss Farms founder, Shanti Sellz, on Wednesday the 19th from 10:30 to 11:30.  We will be building a vertical pallet garden, talking about seed saving and more! Thursday morning brings us a Comedy Magic Show presented by Rick Eugene Brammer at 10:30.  And finally, library veteran and favorite clown, Popo, will be sharing his Spring Surprise on Saturday the 22nd at 10:30.

Be sure to stop by this Sunday as well for a St. Patrick’s Day clothing decorating event from 2:00 to 4:00.  Don’t get caught in a pinch and be sure to bring  an old t-shirt or jeans to dress up for Monday’s holiday.

    I just read the Press Citizen article about making stamps from old toilet paper rolls to make hearts and shamrocks. That sounds like fun – I watched the video on the PC’s website as well. Please contact me @
    How did you make the stamps from the old cardboard rolls? Is there a link to a blog or a website that you could share with me?
    My granddaughter is 2 yrs old – I can hardly wait to start bringing her to Sunday Fun Days at the library. She is spending 3 days with us next week so I plan on coming to the library before that to find some books on crafts to do with little kids! I was impressed to see a 3 yr old handling a scissors in one of the pictures in the paper.
    You are doing a great job!
    Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!!
