The “New” City Council!

I graduated from Wartburg College in 1998. This morning I found myself just a few blocks down the road at the Waverly Public Library.

To say that the kids in the audience were feisty is an understatement!

I thought story time would be the most exciting happening of the day, but my young friend Xavier was even more excited to be checking out the final book in the Percy Jackson series.

Of course, how could I leave town without playing a gigantic [...]

College of our Brightest Days!

Today was story time at the Waverly Public Library, so, I had to make sure I didn’t have a single hair out of place!

I needed to look my best because Waverly is also the home of Wartburg College! I knew that some of my fellow Wartburg classmates might show up and want to sing the Loyalty Song! I was right.

And, as an awesome bonus, the librarians printed [...]

I quickly learned that everyone in Iowa Falls loves to read!

Even these two octopus brothers!

And after story time? [...]

Hooked on Reading!

Wow, was yesterday packed with fun!Here’s how the day ended.

But the day started out in a very crowded Charles City Public Library.

Of course, there were puppets so we could tell the story of the doctor and the shark.

But this is the first stop where there was a tree IN the library instead of out.

Next it was off to the town where I went to college, Waverly.

Grant Price, one of my professors from Wartburg, showed up to story time.Luckily, he didn’t [...]
