The Iowa City Public Library is a center of community life that connects people of all ages with information, engages them with the world of ideas and with each other, and enriches the community by supporting learning, promoting literacy, and encouraging creativity. The ICPL Friends Foundation works to inspire every member of our community to support the Iowa City Public Library as a Library user, volunteer or donor.
