Put some poetry on a candle in this creative National Poetry Month event!

You’ll select a favorite line of poetry, play with typography to make it look good (in a program like Word, Powerpoint, Canva, or Illustrator), create a transfer using packing tape and a printout of your design, and put your one-of-a-kind sticker on a glass candle holder. Add some more poetry to your home or share it as a unique gift.

All supplies are provided. You might want to select your line(s) of poetry ahead of time, or we’ll have some options during the event.

Please register, as supplies are limited.

If you need disability-related accommodations in order to participate in this event, please contact the Library.

This event is open to the public.

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.
