Both branches of the Kirkwood Community College Library will be closed for the 4th of July. We normally publish this list in honor of Memorial Day, but we had so many changes going on about then (and we’re still dealing with construction) that it slipped by so we’re sharing them now. In 2020 we didn’t do a list since library materials were unavailable over most of the summer.
These titles are housed in Cedar Rapids, but you can request them to be delivered to any of the other centers at any time.
