Rippey Iowa Community Notes!!

Announcements of interest in and around the Rippey Community.

The policies and city ordinance concerning the Rippey Public Library are located under the About Our Library  tab.  The Rippey Public Library Board of Trustees governs under the guidelines in the Iowa Trustee's Handbook located at   The Rippey Public Library is in the Central Iowa District.  Maryann Mori is the District Consultant and Doreen Buls is the Library Resource Technician  These resources are available to help libraries with any questions that may need to be explained. Training for librarians and trustees are held for the libraries in their district.  In Greene County, all six libraries are well represented when the training sessions are scheduled.  The libraries take turns hosting these events. 


This week at the library was SO MUCH FUN!  Tuesday's paper airplane competition brought out a lot of kids who made their own gliders, Canards  and Hawkeyes and then flew them for the title of "Best Pilot".

Next week, we will have July 4th crafts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Tuesday is 'Smell-O-Rama' - come in and see if you can figure out 'What's that smell?'

Thursday we will be showing Kung Fu Panda 3.  That's right!  Kung Fu Panda 3  will be showing at 2:30 and 4:30.  Bring the family and watch as Po, Li,  Shifu and the rest of the gang try to stop the peacock villain from
conquering China.


Anyone interested in participating in book club, please contact me at the  library (by email, phone or Facebook page).  We have multiple copies of two  different books, 'One for the Money' by Janet Evanovich and 'Mudbound' by  Hillary Jordan.  We will be starting book club this fall and would like to  know how many readers we can expect and which book we would like to read and  discuss (while we eat treats, of course!).

Have a great week everyone!  Katrina Buttler, Rippey Librarian

 Brick Order for Rippey School Monument Patio Due July 5, 2016

Individuals interested in placing orders for the Rippey School Memorial should complete the application this week, as The Friends of Rippey are planning to submit the order July 5th.

 Mark Devilbiss has graciously and generously assumed the role formerly being filled by his dad, Keith. He is also a mason and will place the new bricks ordered into the patio area.

 Individuals do not have to be graduates of the Rippey School to order a brick, as a number of former students who were educated in the building when it served as the East Greene K-8th grade center now have their bricks in place.

Several persons also have chosen to purchase bricks for their parents, former teachers, or other relatives or friends they want to recognize and honor.  The bricks are $50.00 each, and must be submitted on the “form”, as there is a limit on the lines available on each brick.  The forms are available on the REMEMBERING THE RIPPEY SCHOOL Face Book site, or at the Library, the church, or either Rippey bank.

Please return the form and your check payable to:
