Totally Tweens: Comics & Cookies: Wings of Fire #1

October 28, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Tweens are invited to a monthly meet-up to read and discuss graphic novels. We’ll be talking about old favorites, reading new titles, and doing activities around them. Plus, cookies will be served!

No registration required. This program is for kids in grades 3-6.

This month, we’ll read Volume 1 in the Wings of Fire graphic novel adaptation series. Not every dragonet wants a destiny– Clay has grown up under the mountain, chosen along with four other dragonets to fulfill a mysterious prophecy and end the war between the dragon tribes of Pyrrhia. He’s not so sure about the prophecy part, but Clay can’t imagine not living with the other dragonets; they’re his best friends. So when one of the dragonets is threatened, all five spring into action. Together, they will choose freedom over fate, leave the mountain, and fulfill their destiny — on their own terms. The New York Times bestselling Wings of Fire series takes flight in this first graphic novel edition, adapted by the author with art by Mike Holmes.

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.
