Turtle Time!

Cowabunga Dude!

This is April  reporting live from the Northwest Library.  I am standing in front of the home of the newest members of the Northwest family.  Meet Michelangelo and Raphael, our two red eared slider turtles. Named after two of the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle characters, they have made their new home here at the Northwest branch. Although they are still settling in, they would love a visit and a warm welcome from our patrons. Now we have seen a variety of animals here at our branch. We have our friendly woodpeckers that come visit us every fall, and not too long ago Larry the Camel dropped by for a huge surprise. Our visitors have come and gone, but our turtles are here to stay.  Drop by, say hello, and don't forget the pizza!
