Come for the SPLATS, but stay for outdoor activities, jokes from Pete the Turtle, and treats from New Pioneer Co-op and the FilmScene. Iowa City Public Library will be there with a fun pumpkin art project and the Bookmobile. The Bookmobile will be open for browsing and holds pick up with your ICPL library card or register for a library card if you need one.
