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.
Trips for 2019 are being planned! The first trip will be in May! Check back in the Spring to sign up!
February's book is: "Wesley the Owl" by Stacey O'Brien. Meeting times are: Monday Feb. 25th at 7:00PM or Tuesday Feb. 26th at 11 AM.

Each month, the group reads and discusses a book selected by library staff. Books are obtained by the library for all who want to participate. Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month at 7:00 PM and the 4th Tuesday at 11:00 AM at the library. The same book is discussed at both meeting times.
