Library and Recreation Facilties Remain Closed, Programming Modified - Friday, April 24, 2020

North Liberty’s public facilities, including City Hall and the Community Center, currently closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will remain closed, and registration for summer programs will be postponed, indefinitely.

Through the closure, city staff will continue to offer no-contact services such as phone support and Library Hop checkout, digital services including movies and books, and other modified programming provided remotely, delivered digitally, or held asynchronously.

Recsters summer camp, scheduled to start in June, will be held with space, procedures and programming modified to comply to public health guidance.

The library’s Summer Reading Program will be held with programming delivered remotely. Materials will be printed for pickup or mailed on request to participants who may not have internet access.

The outdoor pool, indoor pool, play structures and splash pad will remain closed to the public.

City ballfields will be closed to practices and tournaments through June.

The city will continue to assess the safety and responsibility of a phased re-opening the Community Center for other programs as public health guidance, the status of COVID-19 in Iowa and Johnson County, and physical space responsibly allows. Announcements will be made on the city’s websites and social media pages.

More COVID-19 notices, information and resources are available at northlibertyiowa.org/coronavirus.

Summer Pool Passes - Eliminated

Hello All,

As summer nears, our patrons start thinking about visiting us at the outdoor pool. Last year, we streamlined our memberships and, in 2020, we will not be offering passes for the Memorial Day-to-Labor-Day summer season. In addition to a daily rate, we continue to offer monthly pool memberships effective from the date of purchase, and patrons can choose to pre-pay for the three-month summer season or simply renew monthly. We also offer an annual pool membership option, reasonably priced for those that come daily.

This August, we expect to close the indoor pool, the backup for closures in the outdoor pool, to allow for major maintenance including a replacement of the aging dehumidification system and repainting while the pool is drained. Your understanding that weather and other factors may affect us in offering access to the outdoor pool during this work is greatly appreciated.
