On a bookshelf near you ...

Thanks to a new e-mail newsletter service from Carnegie-Stout Public Library, I was able to learn which Iowa libraries have copies of my Red Faber biography.

There are 10 of them. Some, such as Dubuque and Cascade, where Faber once lived, are naturals. So too for Loras College, which houses the Center for Dubuque History and which named one of its athletic fields after Faber.

I'm proud that both libraries of the State Historical Society of Iowa (in Des Moines and Iowa City) also have the book.

Regarding some of the remaining libraries, I don't see a Faber connection -- but apparently they have an appreciation for Iowa history, and I commend them for their remarkably good judgment.

Anyway, here are the Iowa libraries with the biography in their collections:

  • Iowa State University, Ames
  • Cascade Public Library
  • Cresco Public Library
  • Des Moines Public Library
  • State Historical Society of Iowa Library, Des Moines
  • Carnegie-Stout Public Library, Dubuque
  • Loras College Library, Dubuque
  • State Historical Society of Iowa Library , Iowa City
  • Manchester Public Library
  • Pleasant Hill Public Library
