Petting Zoo Tommorrow!

Cartoon Child Petting a GoatIt was a blast having ZOOfari here this past Saturday. If you weren't able to make it, don't fret. We have Martha's Petting Zoo coming tomorrow!

Come and meet a farm animal like a llama, deer, pot-bellied piglets, lambs, goats, rabbits, and more. The program will run from 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM and is fro children, ages 3-5. Just look for the animals in front of the library. 

Hedgehogs, and Lemurs, and Rabbits! Oh, my!


This Saturday, at 2:00 PM, we will have Wild Things Zoofari.  Some of the exotic animals they might bring include the squirrel monkey, ring-tailed lemur,  chinchilla, Angora rabbit, gray short-tailed opossum, bearded dragon, marmoset, hedgehog, crested porcupine, blue and gold macaw, and red kangaroo.

The program is free and for ages 5-11. Space is limited, so a ticket will be required. Tickets will become available at the information desk 30 minutes prior to the start of the program. 

It’s not just about the fun of seeing exciting exotic animals up close. The aim is to inspire the children to learn more about these animals and urge them to protect them, as well as their native habitats.
