The Reinbeck Public Library is excited to have author and retired veterinarian Dr. Jim Kenyon of Cedar Falls give a talk on his book, The Art of Listening to the Heart. In his book, he recalls a number of experiences from his days in veterinary practice. Although Dr. Kenyon was chosen as an author that men in the community would especially like, his book talk will be most enjoyable for all that love animals. Dr. Kenyon's book talk will be held at Westview on Tuesday, Feb. 6 at 2:30 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

Our other February events are: Saturday, Feb. 3.: Take Your Child to the Library Day. All children in grade 6 and under will be given a free book just by coming in anytime from 11-4. There will be a limit of one book per child. A special story time will be held at 10:00 a.m. for 1st graders and under. Special readers for the event are Cinderella, Granny from Little Red Riding Hood, The Cat in the Hat, and Pete the Cat. A photo area will be available too.

On Saturday, February 10, we will be taking part in the Grundy County Library Association's trivia competition in the Legion Room of the Memorial Building from 2-4 p.m. This is another free event, open to the public. Teams of 4-8 members may register at the library prior to the event. The bar will be open.

Then, on Tuesday, February 20, we will be hosting a FREE heart disease risk screening event from 7-9 a.m. Grundy County Memorial Hospital will be on hand to provide a free 15 minute health screening with immediate results you can take home with you. Assessment includes blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol, and glucose. Reserve your free spot by contacting the library 319-788-2652. Stop eating and drinking 10-12 hours prior to your screening.

Our regular story time programs will be held as usual all month on Tuesdays at 10:00 a.m.
