Join us in person for Book Babies! Let’s have fun together singing, reading, and rhyming. Book Babies is a program designed to stimulate your infant’s language development and is geared towards ages 0-2 years. Parents and caregivers are encouraged to participate as much as possible.

Book Babies will meet in the Storytime Room. Masks are required for all individuals over the age of two. Social distancing between groups in attendance is encouraged. In order to allow for social distancing attendance will be limited. Singing is a projectile activity, please be mindful of others.

If this is your first time joining us online and you plan to attend Book Babies only online in the morning or afternoon, we offer a FREE Book Babies kit to use with our virtual Book Babies, including an egg shaker, scarf, and song sheet. One kit per baby, please. You will be able to use this kit throughout our recorded livestreamed Book Babies morning or afternoon sessions.
Plan to pick up the kit the week of the event at the Children’s Desk.
Book Babies will also be live streamed at

Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th

The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
