Iowa State Fair Contests. LIBRARIES CLOSED 8/19-8/22

Here are a few more fun Iowa State Fair contests at which you can prove your prowess:
Yodeling.  Be prepared to yodel one tune for 3 minutes or yodel 2 different tunes.  I wonder how many yodeling tunes there are out there?
Whistling.  Same rules as yodeling.  But since you can whistle almost anything, finding 2 tunes should be easy!
Hog Calling.  No live pigs allowed!!!  How do you know it works?
Just a few of the fun things to see at the State Fair while we're closed!

Library Closure Details:
All six locations of the Des Moines Public Library are closed Thursday-Sunday, August 19-22 for a computer upgrade.  Two of these are unpaid furlough days for the staff.  Nothing will be due these dates and fines will not be charged for the closed days.  The Des Moines Public Library Website will be up, but the online catalog, online holds, online payment of fines and fees, Libby - the automated telephone circulation system - and our online resources will not be available.    Bookdrops will remain open.  We look forward to seeing you Monday August 23rd!
