Stories in the Park will be held from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the following locations:

  • Monday at Willow Creek Park, 117 Teg Dr.
  • Wednesday at Wetherby Park, 2400 Taylor Dr.
  • Friday at Mercer Park, 2701 Bradford Dr.

Beginning Wednesday, June 7, the Library’s new Bookmobile will be present at all Stories in the Park dates. Children, parents and caregivers should remember to bring their Library Card in order to check out books and DVDs from the Bookmobile. Anyone who doesn’t have a Library Card can sign up at icpl.org/cards. Bookmobile staff also can issue new Library Cards.

In the event of rain, the Monday and Wednesday storytimes will be held at the Library and the Friday storytimes will be cancelled. However, the Bookmobile will still travel to the parks, rain or shine, so visitors can check out items.

Stories in the Park is an outdoor storytime geared toward children between the ages of three and six. All children in attendance need to be accompanied by a parent or adult caregiver.

Stories in the Park is co-sponsored by the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department and the Iowa City Public Library. For more information, please call the Library at 319-356-5200.
