The Iowa City Public Library will be present at several Iowa City School District elementary school ice cream socials from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 20.
Staff members will attend the back-to-school ice cream socials at Alexander, Hills, Hoover, Horn, Lemme, Lincoln, Longfellow, Lucas, Mann, Shimek, Twain, Weber, and Grant Wood elementary schools to help students and their families apply for a Library Card. Applicants can complete an application at the event and a Library Card will be mailed to their home address.
“Our attendance at the elementary schools’ ice cream socials is to ensure that all students are prepared for the new school year with their own Library Card,” said Kara Logsden, ICPL’s Coordinator of Community and Access Services. “We understand that families are especially busy this time of year, so we are happy to do what we can to make the Library Card application process easier.”
People also can apply for a card online at www.icpl.org/cards or in person at the first floor Help Desk any time the Library is open.
