Check out Book Marks when you return to school

While books always are a big part of education, they are a really big part of it at some area schools.

The official Book Marks project from the City of Literature and Johnson County library partners may be over, but the large book statues themselves live on. Generous donors purchased several of the statues and gifted them to area schools. Those statues now are on display, and you can check them out when you take your children back to school next week.

For example, “A Book is a Present” is at Horace Mann Elementary, while “Desire Defies Reason” is outside Willowwind School.

For a full list of the statues, including pictures and current locations, visit In addition, some of the statues still are available for purchase, and would look great outside your child’s school! Contact John Kenyon at or (319) 356-5245 for details.
