To be or not to be isn’t the question when it comes to family fun at the Iowa City Public Library!
Celebrate William Shakespeare during Sunday Funday in September with activities for families and children of all ages. ICPL’s Shakespeare-themed programming coincides with the Shakespeare First Folio exhibit currently on display at the University of Iowa Main Library.
All Sunday Funday programs are held from 2 to 4 p.m.
