MWD Fireworks!

The first My Waterloo Days festival on the plaza is a great success.  Lots of food, music, people, and best of all fireworks!

Join us at the library courtyard, 9-3:00 p.m., for hot dogs and pop for a buck!

Party on the Plaza!

My Waterloo Days got off to a good start today with great weather and and a new venue, the River Loop Expo Plaza. I'm looking forward to the fireworks Friday night at 10:00 and hope to make it to the parade Saturday morning at 9:30.

Visit the festival's web site for a full schedule and description of events.

The library will be open Saturday; stop in if you need a break from the festivities.

Einstein Speaks

Albert Einstein lived once more at the Waterloo Public Library this evening.  Actor, writer, director, Duffy Hudson, who brought us Edgar Allan Poe last October, fascinated a crowd of 37 with his portrayal of the German genius who gave us E=MxC2.

During his 45 minute monologue, Einstein explained not only the concepts of space, time, and relativity, but also how he "imagined" complex mathematical concepts.  After the show, Duffy doffed his wig and answered questions from the audience:  for another 45 minutes!

It's obvious that Hudson enjoys acting as much as the audience enjoys watching and interacting with him afterwards.  He'll probably come up with a new act next spring, and we'll probably have him back!
