“We are excited to welcome Dan Wardell back to ICPL as he travels across the state to promote reading,” Children’s Coordinator Angela Pilkington says. “His enthusiasm for books, reading and using your imagination is what the Summer Reading Program is all about.”
Kids are invited to attend Wardell’s storytimes at 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. in Meeting Room A. During this special event, attendees will compete against cosmic aliens during the Intergalactic Olympic Championships. Every child attendee will receive a commemorative “space orb” for their efforts.
Support for the Reading Road Trip is provided by Blank Children’s Hospital, Casey’s General Stores and The Coons Foundation. For more information, visit Iptv.org/clubhouse.
