About meI am a member of the Cedar Valley community (Waterloo, Cedar Falls and surrounds) in northeast Iowa. I serve professionally as a Social Sciences Bibliographer at the University of Northern Iowa Rod Library. I also serve in a voluntary capacity as Coordinator of the Peace & Justice Center of the Cedar Valley, a ministry of the Cedar Falls Mennonite Church. My wife is an elementary special education teacher in Cedar Falls.

About my libraryOur library is probably best described as an eclectic mix reflecting evolving personal and professional interests. My interests are are focused in the areas of religion and theology, public affairs, social justice, peace studies, history, Christian spirituality, leadership, and other aspects of the social sciences. My wife's interests are focused in the areas of education, children's literature, as well as general and mystery fiction. Our library also includes several groups of books on certain special themes or features, including cats, Christmas, Iowa, etc. My best estimate is that I now have approximately 80% of our library entered.
