What is happening at your Van Meter Public Library?

Although summer reading is over, there are still many activities at the library.  You are invited to attend any (or all) of the events.  In addition to the experiences at the library, we reach out.  We will be visiting University Kids and Kids Care for a Story Time.  If you have any questions call the Van Meter Public Library at (515) 996-2435.
