The Iowa City Public Library will celebrate the first year of its 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program during a special storytime Saturday, February 11, at 10:30 a.m. in the Storytime Room.
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten encourages parents and caregivers to read 1,000 books to children before they start kindergarten. In doing so, they strengthen a child’s language skills and build their vocabulary — two important tools for beginning readers.
The Library launched the program in February of 2016. Join us as we celebrate our first birthday, as well as the children who reached their 1,000 Books goal. These participants will receive a special certificate to celebrate their “graduation.” We’ll also kickoff our second year of the program, so be sure to stop by, sign up and have some cake, too.
Each participant receives a bookmark at registration to track their first 250 books. Once it’s complete, children can bring it to the Children’s Room for their next bookmark, each one in 250 increments, until they’ve read 1,000 books. Books read more than once do count towards the total. Children also will receive a prize after completing each level of the program: a book bag after 250 books; a book plate to be inserted in any children’s book in the Library’s collection after 500 books; a growth chart after 750 books; and a new book of their own at 1,000 books.
If you can’t attend this event, registration is ongoing and can be completed at the Children’s Desk during regular Library hours or online anytime at http://www.icpl.org/1000books/.
For more information, visit icpl.org/1000books or call the Library at 319-356-5200.

The Iowa City Public Library will add mobile hotspots to its list of materials available to check out on Monday, Jan. 30.
ICPL HotSpot allows users to connect to the Internet anywhere on any wireless-enabled device, such as a laptop, tablet or smartphone. Check one out to complete homework assignments, catch up on current events, apply for jobs or explore the Internet.
The Library has seven ICPL HotSpots available to check out by themselves. Three others are bundled with ICPL’s circulating laptops.
ICPL HotSpots are available to Library users living in Iowa City or one of ICPL’s contract service areas -- Hills, Lone Tree, University Heights, or unincorporated Johnson County – with accounts in good standing. A hotspot can be borrowed for seven days. At this time, users won’t be able to renew hotspots, as the Library wants as many patrons as possible to gain access to the devices.
Overdue hotspots will have Internet access deactivated. The fine for overdue hotspots is $1 per day. The replacement cost for hotspots that are lost or damaged beyond repair is $75.
For more information, call the Library at 319-356-5200.
