Banned Books Readout: IC Public Library

Join Iowa City celebrities and Working Group Theatre and celebrate your freedom to read during Banned Books Week. Working Group Theatre will be performing a new piece entitled “Burn Before Reading.” Iowa City celebrities will be doing readings from banned books and anyone from the public is encouraged to participate. Head to the Library, meet up with others and show your support for the First Amendment and the belief that “Free People Read Freely!”

Please note:  Because the topic is banned books, material presented may include mature language and themes.

Thursday, September 30, 2010
6:00-9:00 p.m.
Meeting Room A, Meeting Room B, Meeting Room C

In 1995, The Iowa City Public Library established the annual Carol Spaziani Intellectual Freedom Festival to honor Carol’s 26-year career at ICPL and life-long commitment to the freedom of ideas. Carol believes that the public library’s role is to be a resource and a forum for an individual’s pursuit and expression of diverse points of view.

All programs are free and open to the public.

2010 Carol Spaziani Intellectual Freedom Festival programs are generously funded through an award from the Freedom to Read Foundation (FTRF), via its Judith F. Krug Memorial Fund. The Freedom to Read Foundation was established in 1969 as a First Amendment legal defense organization affiliated with the American Library Association.

Constitution Day Treats, Sept. 13-17

September 17th marks the 223rd anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. May we recommend pausing for a good cup of coffee to contemplate the significance of that document? Java House (Washington St.), T-Spoons, Capanna, and Fair Grounds coffee shops will shine a light on individual rights established by the Constitution for the week of September 13-17, 2010.

  • Java House will feature the “Bill of Rights” by designating each brew station for one of the first ten amendments to the Constitution.
  • T-Spoon’s has created a special latte that is the “perfect Union” of white chocolate, cherry and blueberry. Like a flag in a cup!
  • Capanna has created a special gelato that speaks “red, white and blue”.
  • Fair Grounds recommends a cuppa the think drink as one considers the meaning of “We the People.”  

Want your very own copy of the Constitution? Thanks to Representative Dave Loebsack, you can pick up a pocket-sized copy at the North Circulation Desk of the Main Library or at Java House, T-Spoons, Capanna and Fair Grounds all week—while supplies last.

On a more serious level, although the U.S. Constitution is a fairly short document, it is the defining outline of the United States government and the source of rights, freedoms and responsibilities of citizens. The Constitution is the highest law in the land and all other laws must comply with its mandates.

90 Years of Votes for Women, Aug. 26

August 26, 1920 marks the 90th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution granting women the right to vote.  But the campaign for women’s suffrage began long before that and the story of Iowa women reflects the stories of women across the country.

As we celebrate 90 years of equal suffrage, the Iowa Women’s Archives (IWA) is undertaking a project to make these valuable and unique items of local and state history available online. IWA has received a grant from the State Historical Society, Inc. to digitize important documents pertaining to the women’s suffrage movement in Iowa and create a resource page linking Iowa suffrage materials across the state.

For a brief history of the women’s suffrage movement in Iowa and examples of the resources that will be available through the Iowa Digital Library in summer 2011, take a look at Women’s Suffrage in Iowa: A Sneak Peek of a New Digital Collection.
