The library has a need for new display items in our case. If you have any collections or info you would like to share, please contact us: 319 788 2652. We usually display items for a month. As of today, May 23, we have nothing scheduled for the summer months. Also, we have had requests for a summer time story time. Our summer reading program for children in grade six and under will soon be starting. It will run through July 12. We have several events scheduled, all held at the Memorial building. Plans are to begin Tuesday morning story time after the summer reading is over, in mid or late July. We need volunteers to do story time. If you would like to do this, let us know.
Speaking of story time, Michele Knaack did a Skippyjon Jones program on May 20. Children in attendance had quite an adventure with it.
