National Day of Service
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr Day of Service, the library is partnering with YSS (Youth & Shelter Services) for a community service project. Join us, Monday, January 17, between 11 am and 1 pm in the library’s ICN Room and help assemble hygiene kits for homeless youth in Iowa. You’ll also have the chance to meet a Peer Support Advocate who will share their story and the impact YSS has had. Pre-registration encouraged, but not required.
