North Liberty Leader

NL’s library director Crowner will retire as of December 31

NORTH LIBERTY– In most libraries, Dee Crowner’s next step could be found filed somewhere in the 332.024s. But, since the North Liberty Community Library switched to subject-based classification last year, here it would be simply under “retirement.” Crowner, who has been the North Liberty Community Library’s director since 1987, will be stepping down at the end of the year.
“Dee has been a valuable member of our staff for more than two and a half decades, and I’m thankful for her dedication and stewardship of the library,” said mayor Tom Salm. “Her retirement is well deserved.”

No common ground yet

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader

NORTH LIBERTY– If Tiffin mayor Steve Berner had a new 28E agreement on his Christmas wish list, he may want to go ask Santa Claus for something else.

What if we’re just a little bit naughty?

It was HIS idea. Jolly Old Saint Nicholas conspired with Anushka Dervesh, whispering something in her ear just before her mother snapped this photo of the two of them sticking out their tongues. Santa Claus visited the North Liberty Community Center on Saturday, Dec. 7, to visit with local kids during the community’s annual Breakfast With Santa event. Children were able to enjoy a pancake breakfast, do a craft, play with Jumbe the Lion, view a toy train in action and watch a holiday video before jumping in the long line of kids waiting to sit on Santa’s lap.
