The IOLA READS Community Selection 2022, “Take Me With You” by Catherine Ryan Hyde, is about a burned-out teacher who rises above his grief and transforms the lives of two young boys, forever.  The power of a teacher!
(Books available at the Iola Public Library.)

IOLA READS and the Iola Register are partnering together in Celebrating Our Teachers!  Teachers both past and present who have inspired us and made us better.

We invite the community and students to write letters to “Thank a Teacher who has inspired You.”  It can be a teacher you have now or one you had many years ago.

Please submit your letters to the Iola Register by February 18, 2022 so they can be included in a special “Celebrating Our Teachers” supplement edition published on March 8.   The Iola Register will include as many letters as they can.

You may submit letters in three ways to the Iola Register: 

  1. Email your letter to
  2. Send your letter to Iola Register, 302 S. Washington, Iola, KS 66749
  3. Bring it by anytime from Monday – Friday 8:00 am – 6:00 pm

Thank you for helping us in Celebrating Our Teachers!

They are truly our HEROES!

Please share this with friends, family, colleagues and on social media.  Thank you!
