Staff members had a wonderful time visiting Lone Tree on Saturday. We were excited to issue several new Library cards and help update some expired accounts. Lone Tree residents came with a lot of great questions about Library cards and services.
Since the City of Lone Tree signed a contract with the Iowa City Public Library last month, residents are now eligible for “Resident Cards” and correlating services. This means that along with checking out books, movies, discs, magazines, art prints, and Storytime kits, Lone Tree residents are now also eligible to check out equipment, use our Interlibrary Loan Services, enroll in At Home Services, and access our eResources.
Several Lone Tree residents stopped by to learn more about the eResources. Residents are now able to download audiobooks & music, eBooks & digital magazines, and access our references databases from home.
A few kids came by and had fun with the “Twitters & Tweets” Storytime and craft.
It was a great day. Thank you to everyone who came to see us!

Iowa City Public Library staff members are looking forward to visiting Lone Tree this Saturday, February 22. We are excited to welcome Lone Tree’s residents to the Library! Staff members will be at the Lone Tree Library from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. to help share information about Library collections and services.
Staff will be available to issue Library cards and answer general questions about the Library. If residents are interested in getting a Library card, please make sure to bring photo identification and proof of current residential address.
There will be an eResources class at 9:15 a.m. with Tech Help to follow. If you have any questions about online products and services available at ICPL please feel free to bring your tablets and other devices so we can show you how to access the Library’s eBooks and eMagazine collections.
Join us for a bird Storytime, “Twitters & Tweets,” at 9:30 a.m. and we’ll think about warm weather and birds. Plan to stay after for a children’s craft – we’ll provide a bird template and kids will be able to glue feathers on.
We hope to see you there!

It is a privilege to be able to observe the willingness of our patrons to dedicate their time and energy to make a difference in the community and in Library operations. For over 30 years volunteers have been a valued resource. We love our volunteers!
The Library is always accepting volunteer applications. Our needs vary throughout the year, but right now we are specifically looking for volunteers to help check in Library materials, work at The Book End used bookstore, and assist with the Library’s CoderDojo program. We also always have openings for volunteers to straighten shelves and help clean audiovisual collections.
Young Adults (Grade 7 and up) and Adults are eligible to participate in the Volunteer Program. Please follow this link for more information about ICPL’s Volunteer Program and for a volunteer application: http://www.icpl.org/work/.
If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the application so we can see if there are any volunteer positions that work with your availability. Return all applications to Volunteer Assistant, 123 S. Linn St, Iowa City, IA 52240.
