Spring is a busy time of the year for everyone, including the Iowa City Public Library. In April, the Library will begin wrapping up its programming related to music for the Music is the Word campaign and will celebrate Money Smart week. Join us for one of our adult computer classes to compose music and learn about ICPL’s money management resources.
At 2 p.m. Monday April 4, and again at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Saturday, April 16, you can create music of your own using one of our iPads. Garageband is an app that is easy to use regardless of your musical experience. Together we’ll create a song and have fun recording and learning about music composition.
Want to know more about digital music? Join us at 10 a.m. Friday, April 22, or 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 27, to understand the difference between online music providers Spotify, ICPL’s Local Music Project, Pandora, streaming radio services, and subscription streaming services.
Wrapping up the month is Money Smart Week. Be Money Smart with Value Line and MorningStar will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, April 26. MorningStar and Value Line are two leading resources for investment research. We’ll demonstrate how to use these databases so you can get the information you need to be a smarter investor.
All classes for adults are held in the Library’s Computer Lab on the second floor. Classes are free, but space is limited to 10 people per program, so patrons should register early. Visit www.icpl.org/classes to register online. You can also register by calling the Library at 319-356-5200.
