Bringing Education and Seniors Together 



The Bringing Education and Seniors Together (B.E.S.T.) program consists of planning a day trip once a month to Iowa sights. The trip is targeted to people age 55+. Times will vary according to destination. Call the Library at 515-266-7815 for questions, to reserve your seat or add your name to the mailing list.

The bus will begin loading 30 minutes prior to the trip. If you are traveling on the trip, please sign in and pick up your name tag. Vehicles can be parked in the lot west of the library during the day trips.
