Performers Showcase 2022

The Youth Services Subdivision hosted our annual Performer’s Showcase at the beginning of November. The talent was amazing!! Thanks so much to all the performers who came out and shared with us. We had about 50 librarians in the room with us live and another 65 via zoom so thank you also for taking the time out of your busy schedules to support the amazing performers in Iowa and the Midwest.

Here’s a link to the YouTube video if you missed the show or would like to go back and look at some of the performances again. Contact information for each performer is at the very beginning of the whole video.
