Sunday Fun Days are returning to a mainly in-person program at the library on Sunday afternoons. We have expanded the hours of the craft program and will spread out more tables for groups to make crafts.

Colgar linternas es una decoración común que encontrarás durante el Año Nuevo chino.
Este año, el 15 de febrero se conoce como el festival de las linternas. ¡Aprende sobre el festival de las linternas y cómo hacer tu propia linterna de papel en el Sunday Fun Day hoy!

Sunday Fun Days han regresado a un programa principalmente en persona en la biblioteca los domingos por la tarde. El programa tiene mas horas que antes y distribuiremos más mesas para que los grupos hagan arte.

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.
