Storytime at the Stanley

November 19, 2022 @ 10:30 am

Join Iowa City Public Library children’s librarians at the University of Iowa’s new Stanley Museum of Art for a very special storytime!

We’ll start with stories in the museum lobby from 10:30 to about 11 a.m. Enjoy listening to picture books celebrating the power of art and learn about artists who are part of the Stanley’s inaugural exhibition! Along with these read-alouds will be creative movement activities like rhymes, songs, and fingerplays.

After storytime, try a scavenger hunt through the museum and see world-class works of art up close. Get a set of colored pencils for finishing the hunt! Docents will be stationed throughout the galleries to help with the hunt and answer questions about the art. Browse the galleries as long as you like!

All are welcome, but this storytime may be best suited for preschoolers and up.

The Stanley Museum of Art is located at 160 W. Burlington Street in Iowa City. Admission is free.
