Great selection. Private study rooms. Enforcing masks and not letting people wear "chin diapers". Felt safe and had a productive study session. Go IC!
It’s a fine library with a great selection... but... The library allows homeless bums - most of whom appear to be on drugs - to wander around the lobby without face masks while they require patrons - most of whom can be assumed to be vaccinated (based on the 72% rate in Johnson County) - to wear masks. This makes me sad and defies logic.
This on a sincere pride of Iowa City and a significant staple within the larger community. The Iowa City Public Library (ICPL) has a giant media section for both children and adults full of DVDs, Audio Books, and e-resources. The ICPL has several different community activities each weekday night and several child and youth activities during the school year and during breaks. The community rooms are all free for checkout and it is located within the Pedestrian Mall with direct access to various restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. During the warmer months there is an outdoor fountain for children to play within and weekly live music concerts.
I usually go there for extra study material, of which they have plenty. Nice studying areas with well organized books. Staff are super helpful
wonderful place for intellectuals and ordinary people who crave for knowledge
