Join Jennifer Clark as she brings her traveling exotic petting zoo to our library. She will be bringing 6 different animals to learn about as well as see and touch! Also, because she is a privately owned company and charges very little for her show because as she says,”we are devoted to extending our love of animals to people of all ages, through educational AND entertaining programs”, so we will be collecting items for her animals from the start of summer reading until the night of her program. So if you are interested in donating items to her cause, please call the library (315-684-9130) or stop in and get a copy of the list of things she needs.
