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

Join us on Saturday, March 7 from 11 am to Noon to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Princess Elizabeth.

Bookseller Terri will read The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch. We'll make paper bag crowns and slay dragons. (We've heard that one has been sighted in the Cedar Rapids area!)

We hope you can join us to celebrate the princess of empowerment on International Women’s Day weekend.
