Several people have turned in their memories of Al Bell, and we would like many more. Al Bell was a man who traveled the world, then gave programs about his travels to Iowa school children in the 50s, 60s, and 70s. On September 13, Al's daughters will be doing a short program at Westview beginning at 1:15. This program is sponsored by the library and the public is invited to attend. There will be a time for sharing memories, and a question and answer session. In the weeks prior to the program, we will display written memories at the library, then give them to Al's daughters.
