Folks in our community seem to have wanderlust! Last year the Jefferson County Recorder’s office processed 359 new passports and 260 renewals, and they took 384 passport photos. The library’s travel books are popular, and our online foreign language tutorials are used more than at many larger Iowa libraries.

This afternoon you'll receive a travel expo “passport” upon entering the building, and we'll encourage you to visit educational booths manned by subject experts on a wide range of travel topics: How to pack like a ninja, apply for a passport, meet TSA guidelines, convert currency, travel on a budget, enjoy group learning adventures, use safety measures, travel with your pet, get an international driver’s license, rent a foreign car, etc.

Local presenters include Dr. Wiegert from The Veterinary Clinic, Ann Tonnesson from The Travel Designer, Bri Buford and Adam Reese from MidwestOne Bank, Chris Carter from the Jefferson County Recorder’s Office, world traveler Denise Gallagher, etc. Out-of-town presenters will drive in from Landmark Luggage in Des Moines and Omaha, Road Scholar in Des Moines, and AAA of Iowa City.

Completed passports can be entered into a drawing to win exciting travel prizes! This event is free and open to the public.
