The Harlan Community Library and Shelby County Historical Museum with financial assistance from Humanities Iowa, a private, non-profit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, are hosting a children’s presentation of “Iowa’s Hidden Treasures” by Dan Kaercher at 3:00 PM on Monday afternoon March 28, 2016 at the Harlan Community Library.
