*If you aren't an Iowa City local and are looking for a way to get out of the house, the library is a great destination for kids and adults alike! There's a huge children's section with a book-house, play kitchen, train tables, AV equipment. If your spouse wants to come and kid-wrangle, there's the UI's Macbride Museum of Natural History, Prairie Lights bookstore, downtown wandering/shopping, the Children's Museum at the Coral Ridge Mall, or playing in the snow at one of the local parks. ;)
