The Pella Welcome Committee along with Pella Reads is hosting an open house at the library as part of its effort to promote Pennies For Peace. The open house will feature readings and discussion of “Three Cups of Tea” by Greg Mortensen, a book about the struggle for access to education in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Library Director Wendy Street says because Pennies For Peace is a project started by Mortensen, the Library was a natural partner for the Welcome Committee and its project. The reading takes place Wednesday, January 19th from 4-8:30pm at the library.
