The Flu is Nothing to Sneeze At
There is no doubt we are at the peak of the flu season. It seems as though everyone knows someone who is suffering with flu-like symptoms. With so many people coming down with Influenza A, it is a good time to review what the flu is, as well as ways to prevent and treat it.
Hiawatha's First Dog Park Set to Open this Spring
Hiawatha's very first dog park will be opening in the Spring of 2020! The 2-acre park is located south of Boyson Rd. at 711 Kainz Dr. along the Cedar Valley Nature Trail. The parks department is accepting financial donations, which will help further develop the park and aid in additional equipment. For more information about how you can help, visit their website at hiawatha-iowa.com.
The library renovations are coming along nicely! The library still scheduled to be completed in September.
Blind Date with a Book
During the month of February check out Blind Date with a book at the library. Books will be wrapped-which makes the selection even more fun. Pick a book, based off of a few descriptive words or phrases, then have the librarian check it out for you. Take your new 'date' home and see if it is a match.
