The pubic had their chance to formally meet new library director Wanda Gardner. Friends of the Oskaloosa Public Library held an event at the library on Thursday afternoon starting at 5:00 pm and going until 6:15.

There was a nice crowd of come and go visitors to welcome Ms. Gardner who comes to Oskaloosa from LeClaire, where she was director of their library.

I asked her what one of the most interesting questions she’s asked. She replied that she interviewed at 3 libraries and the first question she was asked was, “Do you know Mike and Frank?” She would have to think Mike and Frank?

For those that are not familiar with that, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are long time friends and antique dealers. They are also the star’s of their own TV show on the History Channel. And to help her answer that question yes, she knows Mike, but she’s not ever seen the show yet, she don’t get the History Channel.

You can read an earlier article written on her first day at the Library HERE.

So the next time your in the library, stop by and introduce yourself to Wanda. I can guarantee you will be all the better for it.
