As part of Decorah Public Library’s “A Universe of Stories” Summer Reading Program, Green Iowa AmeriCorps will be partnering with the library to offer hands-on classes for children entering second through fifth grades.

Enviro Storytime is scheduled for Tuesdays, July 16, 23 and 30, at 10:30 a.m. Children will hear stories about nature and environments, and will then use their imagination to invent a story and create their own book.

Children also are invited to come to the library Wednesday, July 17, at 10:30 a.m. to make solar cars and learn how to “run with the sun.”

Programs will be held in the Public Program Room of the library. Pre-registration is required at For additional information, contact Joan Roach, children’s and youth librarian, at 563-382-3717.
