Great Holiday Gifts from ICPL

by Kara Logsden on December 5th, 2017

Suddenly Winter is here – it blew in overnight. If you are looking for a cozy holiday gift, check out these clothing items embroidered with the ICPL Logo thanks to our friends at Underground Printing. You need to act quickly, though, because items may only be ordered at this link through MIDNIGHT Wednesday December 6th. Your order supports the Library because the ICPL Friends Foundation receives a donation for each item purchased.

Here’s the details: You place your order and pay directly online. Items you order will be available to pick up at the ICPL Help Desk beginning Thursday, December 21, 2017. We cannot take any late orders for the December 21st delivery; however, we may offer another purchase option in early 2018.

Happy Holidays and keep warm with ICPL apparel.



Crystal City-Music on Wednesday

by Kara Logsden on October 15th, 2016

2016 05 06 Crystal City

Last spring Crystal City performed a Music on Wednesday program in our Lobby and I was blown away by their music. It is harmonious, celebratory, and joyful. Plus Sam’s whistling ability is … AMAZING! Join us Wednesday October 19th at Noon as we welcome Crystal City back to Iowa City Public Library.

Dave Helmer and Sam Drella are Crystal City. Their music is described as “Heartland rock band with blue-collar roots” with “themes of love and loss, being good to each other, and celebrating life.” Since discovering this band I’ve enjoyed listening to their music online (listen here) and getting to know their music a bit better. If you live in our service area (Iowa City, rural Johnson County, Hills, University Heights or Lone Tree), you can download their album for free with your ICPL card and password via our Local Music Project.

I’ll see you at the Library on Wednesday October 19 at Noon in the Lobby for the sweet tunes of Crystal City.
