Animals and handlers from the Little River Zoo will visit the hometown public libraries of the Pioneer Library System with a hands-on program for teens. The program, Featured Creatures, is a twist on the Teen Summer Reading Challenge 2006 theme, Creature Feature.
Since opening to the public in 1996, the Little River Zoo in Norman has become a major educational resource in the community, teaching visitors about compassion, hope and respect for all living things.
Every visitor to the zoo receives a personally guided tour, one that provides not just the facts about the animals, but who they are, where they came from, and the differences in their personalities. Many of the animals are cast-off pets or rescued animals that have found a permanent home at the zoo.
Featured Creatures will visit the library in Noble, 204 N. Fifth, Monday; Tecumseh, 114 N. Broadway, Tuesday; Blanchard, 300 N. Main, Wednesday; Norman, 225 N. Webster, Thursday and Moore, 225 S. Howard, on Wednesday, June 21.
All programs begin at 2 p.m.?For program details and registration information, call or visit the library.
