On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

February is Black History Month. We'll look through the lenses of history, literature, music and art to both remember and celebrate Black History and achievement.

We'll look to celebrated (and less well-known) historical figures as well as local treasures. Children's Stories, musical acts, speakers, crafts and more!

We always recommend confirming details before attending. We hope to see you there!
