I would like to thank the staff at the Record News for their community-based features including last week’s story about the Mount Ayr Public Library.
We have received a number of positive comments.
Friday, the library was the meeting place for Dr. Jennifer Drinkwater of Iowa State University, an Extension Community Art Specialist and Associate Professor and her team of Iowa State students.
They were here to learn more about Mount Ayr from our perspective. Thanks to Jennifer Kellner who joined us and added valuable information on her perspective of moving to Mount Ayr several years ago.
In addition, she gave the team information on her work experiences in the community. They were most impressed by the overall appearance of the town.
The Record News and Diagonal Progress, hometown newspapers, were cited as positives for Mount Ayr and Ringgold County.
They loved the library as a community center, visiting with patrons, Don and Merce’ Ray, and others for whom the library is a welcoming place.
They enjoyed reading your feature story on the library. Keep up the good work. I am looking forward to future stories.
Mary Kathryn Gepner
