Council Bluffs Public Library

When the Bloomer’s arrived in town Dexter noted virtually every building in Council Bluffs had been converted into a saloon. Society could certainly benefit from some changes, and Dexter and Amelia Bloomer were up to the challenge, tackling things from women’s rights to temperance to education. The program will be presented by Linda Knell, Kimberly Kazmierczak, and Ben Johnson, Thursday, September 29, at 7 pm, at the Council Bluffs Public Library. There is no admission charge and the public is invited. Support is provided by the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs, and the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor.
