2021-08-23 15:59:46

School children and their families are invited to join the James Kennedy Public Library and Grade Level Reading at the Commercial Club Park in Dyersville to celebrate the return to school. The Mississippi River Museum and Swiss Valley Nature Center will bring live wildlife visitors, and Dubuque County librarian Kayla Ferguson will bring her pet praying mantis for kids to meet. Kids can read a story to therapy dog Darby, visit with local high school sports teams, play in a bounce house, tour first responder vehicles, and pick out a free book. There will be free hot dogs and ice cream for lunch! Crafts and cookie decorating will top off the day.
