Universal Declaration of Human Rights 70th Anniversary

Seventy years ago, December 10, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a document promising all people freedom of speech, of worship, from want, and from fear. Debra L. DeLaet, Professor of Political Science, Drake University will give an overview of the Declaration, its influence on international human rights law, and ways everyday citizens can advance the cause of these rights.

Zombie Makers

Revive your old toys – by turning them into the undead! Come to the East Side Library's fourth annual Zombie Maker event! We'll have plenty of supplies to help you turn your old stuffed animals, action figures, toys, dolls, and more into creatures of the night. As the program winds down, we'll be voting on our favorite freaky Frankenstein-y knickknacks and handing out prizes. Feel free to wear a costume so you can head straight out to Beggars' Night!
