Visit with an Iditarod Legacy Dog All ages at WPLD

Saturday, February 24, 2024

Learn about the Iditarod race!

As we near the end of our Winter Reading IditaRead challenge, learn more about the race that inspired the challenge.

Alaskan dog sled Iditarod participants and Warrenville residents Cheryl and Tom McGarrity will share their experiences and provide a behind-the-scenes look at the legendary race. They'll bring Holly, an ancestor of an actual Iditarod dog, to help tell their story.

Need some book suggestions to get you to the IditaRead finish line? You can place holds on the titles below or visit the IditaRead display in the Youth Services department.

  • Race Across Alaska by Libby Riddles
  • Iditarod Dream by Ted Wood
