Imagine. Create. Explore.

What if the library was more than just a place for books, music and movies? What if the library was a place to learn survival skills, brew beer and fix your bike? Find new opportunities to make, create and explore.


Get into the swing of summer at ImagineIF Libraries. Collaborate, experiment and problem solve as you play. Whether you are building a giant outdoor movie screen, mixing up a fizzy beverage, or drafting a scene in a play, you’ll be sure to find something for you this summer. Especially for those 18 and up.
