IPTV Story Time at Robey Memorial Library

The Anne Lauerman Story Corner was the location for an excited crowd of 50-plus individuals for the Iowa Public Television (IPTV) Story Time held Saturday, March 12 at Robey Memorial Library in Waukon (top picture). Shane Straka, IPTV Educational Specialist, read "The Chicken Problem" by Jennifer Oxley, a Peg + Cat series book which is a humorous story of chickens running-a-muck on the farm and how it’s up to Peg + Cat to use their math skills to help solve the problem. Then the youth participants searched the library for lost chickens (cotton balls) scattered throughout the main floor library and returned them back to the chicken coop in the children’s area. Meeting Peg + Cat was the highlight for all young attendees, each of them receiving a photo opportunity with the popular characters. Two local teens volunteered to be in the Peg + Cat character costumes (bottom picture) and mingle with the children. Submitted photos.
