Iowa Public Television Announces Communities for Ninth Annual Reading Road Trip

Iowa Public Television today announced the network will embark on another ambitious tour of Iowa libraries during the ninth annual summer Reading Road Trip. Dan Wardell, popular host of the IPTV KIDS Clubhouse, will welcome kids and families in communities across Iowa throughout the summer.

Iowa Public Television will partner with 71 libraries to promote summer reading in June and July. Wardell will tell an interactive original story at the libraries, encouraging kids to spend time reading, playing outside, using their imagination and eating healthy snacks.

In addition to the scheduled story times at libraries across Iowa, Wardell will keep an online journal of his fun on the Reading Road Trip with pictures, an interactive map, video and more. Families can follow Dan online at Iptv.org/dantastic or on Facebook at IPTV KIDS Clubhouse.
