East Iowa City? Really, there is an East Iowa City? Learn about the growth of the eastern part Iowa City and its early history as a manufacturing center during Irving B. Weber Days. Weber Days are held every May in honor of Iowa City’s unofficial historian, the late Irving B. Weber. Every Wednesday in May, the Library will host an event that delves into Iowa City’s history. This Wednesday, May 14 Dr. Thomas Schulein, another citizen historian, will share the story of East Iowa City at 7 p.m. in Meeting Room A. How East Iowa City Came to Be is one of the library’s WOW – Weber on Wednesday programs.
