Willow and Tracey Bland. Coucil Bluffs, IA. This Library was erected in memory of Willow's papa, James Minshall Sr. He was murdered in 2014 in a botched robbery in our family business. Willow and Papa were the best of friends. He was not the best reader, but every night the two of them sat in his chair and he read her 10 Timid Ghosts in a Haunted House! That book means the world to her now! It is her connection with Papa. Willow also has a huge love of Harry Potter and all things magical.
