The Iowa City Public Library’s meeting rooms A, B and C will be intermittently closed to the public August 24 through September 14 due to an equipment upgrade.

Wireless capability will be added to the Library’s biggest meeting room, Meeting Room A, and a Blu-Ray option, providing those who book the room with more viewing options. Patrons will also have the ability to connect their Smartphones, tablets and other technology to the Library’s equipment.

“The goal is to improve the user experience for our patrons,” says Brent Palmer, the Library’s information technology coordinator. “Unfortunately, to do this, the meeting rooms will be out of commission temporarily.”

A list of alternative meeting room locations is available at:
