Iowa Public Television’s Dan Wardell to visit ICPL July 13

Posted: Updated:

Dan Wardell, the popular host of IPTV KIDS Clubhouse, will be at the Iowa City Public Library on Thursday, July 13, as part of his 11th annual Iowa Public Television’s Reading Road Trip.

Wardell will travel to 24 local communities this summer to share an original, interactive story with kids and families. As he has in the past, Wardell will encourage kids to turn their TVs off, read a good book, go outside and play, use their imaginations, and eat healthy foods.

“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 storytime from 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. in Meeting Room A.

Support for the Reading Road Trip is provided by Blank Children’s Hospital and Casey’s General Stores.
