Iowa is full of colorful characters! Meet a few on the third Wednesday of each month with a digital storytime program with Goldie's Kids Club. Each month, a new book recommendation and hands-on activity with an Iowa connection will be digitally released. This at-home program is recommended for young historians (ages 3-7).
