Michele Knaack did a yoga story time for children on September 11. The next story time will be held at the library on Tuesday, September 25 at 10:00 a.m. Adrienne Williams will do the program.
On September 13, the daughters of Al Bell, Rhea and Becky, gave a presentation about their father at Westview. Becky had contacted the library last spring about doing a program in Reinbeck prior to the annual Al Bell film festival in Stuart on September 16. Many Reinbeck residents remember Al Bell, who traveled the world from 1949 to 1979, and gave programs to Iowa schools about the countries he visited. He always showed a film which he made about the place he visited. He visited an average of 400 Iowa schools each year, sometimes doing four schools in one day. Rhea and Becky brought some items from the countries their father had visited, including dolls, figurines and clothing made from fabric purchased in other countries. They shared memories of their father, and answered questions. The audience enjoyed listening to the presentation, as well as contributing memories they had.
New books at the library this week include: Nowhere to Hide by Nancy Bush, Zoo by James Patterson and The Cowboy and the Princess by Lori Wilde.
