Kids and families learned all about the science of animals at the Jacksonville Public Library. Animal Tales, an animal education program from Kentucky, presented their Animal Science program to a packed house on Friday, June 20th. Everyone got to explore the topic of animal classifications in a fun and interactive program featuring a Capybara, Brazilian Salmon Pink Bird-Eating Spider, Collard Aracari, Giant African Bullfrog, and a Burmese Python.
The library’s summer programs aren’t over just yet. There will be a sing-a-long with Billy Jonas at 2 p.m. June 27.
Something new the library is doing this year in addition to the closing program for children is a closing program for adults at 5:30 p.m. on July 10 with Wills Creek Winery, who will give a presentation about the science of wine-making. Because wine can’t be served at the library, juice will be served and there will be cheese tasting with a variety of cheeses from Publix.
At the end of the program there will be a drawing for adult reading program prizes, which include books, gift certificates and Kindle Fires.
