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

There's something for all ages at this fun event, starting with STAR WARS Story Time at 4:00 PM. Make a Baby Yoda and have a photo taken with your favorite STAR WARS villains!

Authentic STAR WARS Stormtroopers are visiting the library!

May the Fourth Be With You at CRPL is STAR WARS fun for everyone. Story Time in the Commons will be followed by photo opportunities and a Baby Yoda craft extravaganza.

The Cedar Rapids Public Library wishes to thank The Korriban Squad, Central Garrison Unit of the 501st Legion, an all-volunteer international STAR WARS costuming club. Their charity work and volunteerism celebrate the magic of STAR WARS, and the group has been recognized by Lucasfilm LLC for their superior costuming.

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