The Tyler Public Library will host animals from the Caldwell Zoo at 1:30 p.m. and at 3 p.m. on Friday, according to a press release from the city. Programs are free of charge.
Members of the Ed-Zoo-Cational program at the Zoo will bring a salamander, a box turtle, a ferret and a hedgehog for the children to see up close.
“All of the animals are ‘digging’ animals, which goes with the Summer Reading Club theme of ‘Dig into Reading,’” Youth Services Librarian Linda Gray said in the release. “Since they will be at the library, children can learn even more about these animals by reading a book about them,” she said.
This visit from the Caldwell Zoo is the fifth and last Fab Friday event for the Summer Reading Club. Friday’s programs are designed for children age 5 and up, but all are welcome to attend. Children age 12 and under must have an adult present with them at all times. The library is at 201 S. College Ave.
