The Iowa City Public Library was established in 1896 and has always served the community from a downtown location. Collections are the core of the library’s mission and we strive to provide materials to satisfy all ages and interests; books, videos, eCollections, art prints, compact discs and interactive media. The Iowa City Public Library has one large, two medium, and two small meeting rooms. When not in use for Library activities, they are available for use by eligible groups. Thirty-eight public computers provide Internet access and wireless Internet access is available through the entire building and much of the City Plaza area. ICPL serves the public’s information needs through well-trained staff at the Information, Help and Children’s Desks. Visit the Library’s website for more information.
