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.

Ulysses S. Grant comes to life in this informative, humorous, and touching portrayal.

This program is free and open to all. Join us Friday, February 28th at 6:30 pm at the Hiawatha Public Library. *Special thanks to Humanities Iowa for sponsoring this event.
