Dan Wardell, popular producer and host of IPTV Kids Clubhouse at Iowa Public Television, will present two back-to-back story times at the Decorah Public Library at 10-10:45 and again at 11-11:45 Friday, June 28th. Wardell comes as part of the children’s summer reading program, “Dig Into Reading!” Wardell’s adventures take him to schools and libraries across the state  teaching kids to turn off their TVs, to go outside and play, to use their imagination, and most importantly, to read a good book. Wardell’s Reading Road Trip, an exclusive 65 stop library tour each summer, has performed for over 68,000 kids and grownups during the past five years. All of his travels, in addition to his “Healthy Minutes” and IPTV Kids Clubhouse segments, can be found at Wardell says about this year’s visit, “I’ll be giving away a spectacularly fantastic flashlight that everyone is going to love!”


The children’s summer reading program is a 5 week long program starting June 10th that promotes summer reading for children ages 3-10 years. Once the reading goal of 15 hours has been reached, children receive a free library T-shirt sponsored by the Friends of Decorah Public Library and free food coupons from McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and Pizza Ranch. Reading programs, activities and entertainment are scheduled each week.


Questions regarding the children’s summer reading program may be directed to children’s librarian, Sally Stromseth, by calling the library at 563-382-3717 or by email:
