The Library will provide free bus rides to children through 12th grade, and the adult caregivers who are with them, on any Iowa City Transit bus route, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. every weekday beginning Wednesday, June 3. Eligible bus riders should show their Iowa City Public Library card to the bus driver to gain free access to the bus.

Children can catch a ride home anytime the same day with a Ride & Read bus pass, which is issued by showing a Library Card at any public service desk at the Library.

Parents, if your child doesn’t have an Iowa City Public Library card, visit www.icpl.org/cards/ for information about how to apply for a card. Complete your application online, then stop by the Help Desk within two weeks to pick up your card. You can also apply in person at the Help Desk any time the Library is open. Adults will need to show photo identification (current driver’s license, lease or passport) and proof of resident address (current driver’s license, mail with a current post mark; current lease) in order to obtain a Library Card.

Photo identification is not required for children.

The summer bus program ends Friday, Aug. 21.

For more information, please call the Library at (319) 356-5200.
