The Iowa City Streets Division will begin street sweeping in two weeks to remove sand and debris to enhance public safety. During this time, on-street parking will be prohibited in certain areas so that sweepers can access the full width of the street. Vehicles not moved will be towed. “No parking due to maintenance” signs will be posted at least 48 hours in advance of any work to alert vehicle owners to move their cars. Work is scheduled to coincide with the University’s Spring Break schedule. If you are a University student who normally parks in one of these areas, plan accordingly so that your vehicle is not towed.
On Monday, March 13, 2017, crews will begin sweeping the Downtown area and will then focus on main arterial streets and bike lanes. Crews will then move into residential areas. Drivers are asked to be patient, as the sweepers are slow-moving and stop periodically to empty debris. Street sweeping in the Downtown area is expected to be completed by Thursday, March 16. It takes crews about seven weeks to complete a full pass through the City.
Below is a list of locations that have been scheduled for sweeping on Tuesday, March 14 and Wednesday, March 15. Cars parked along these routes should be moved prior to the start of clean-up.
On Wednesday, March 8, the following streets will be posted for street sweeping that will begin at 7a.m. on Tuesday, March 14:
Bloomington Street, from Linn Street to Clinton Street (north side only)
Iowa Avenue, from Muscatine Avenue to Van Buren Street (north side only)

Join an important conversation on aging and community design at the Senior Center on Thursday, March 9, 2017.
Architect Zachary Benedict will present “Becoming a More Age-Friendly Community” at 6 p.m. at the Iowa City Senior Center, 28 South Linn Street. Benedict is a leading voice in the “Lifetime Community” movement that focuses on the socio-economic benefits of age-friendly neighborhoods. A panel discussion that includes local stakeholders will follow his presentation.
The panel discussion, moderated by Benedict, will run from 7 to 8 p.m. and will focus on age-friendly initiatives in our own community such as TRAIL, Prairie Hill Co-Housing, and Oaknoll.
As Iowa City and Johnson County receive national recognition as ideal retirement destinations, participants will discuss how to make our community more welcoming – not only for new residents, but for existing residents interested in walkable, intergenerational neighborhoods, as well as other quality of life indicators. The conversation will also focus on age-friendly improvements for people of all ages that can be enjoyed today and for generations to come.
This program is being presented as part of The Center’s 2017 program theme “Age More,” which examines ageism and what it means to age in place by exploring values, systems, and beliefs that make up our community.
There is no charge to attend and people of all ages are encouraged to come for the presentation and discussion.
The event is co-sponsored by Friends of The Center, The University of Iowa School of Urban and Regional Planning, and Hills Bank and Trust Company.
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.
