LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – It is Zoo Day at Kurth Memorial Library and you will never guess who showed up. A Sinaloan Milksnake and a Mata Mata turtle.
Youngsters are participating in the library's summer reading program. Its theme is "Dig up a good book." Their focus is on animals and that is where the Zoo comes in. The kids got a chance to see up close and in person a Sinaloan Milksnake and a Mata Mata turtle.
Charlotte Henley, Zoo Education Coordinator, also gave a Powerpoint presentation that highlighted popular Zoo animals.
"It's all about fun and learning during the summer. We will soon be talking about dinosaurs and Dinosaur George will visit in a couple of weeks," said Lorraine Simoneau, Librarian.
You still have time to get involved. The reading program lasts all summer, ending August 12.
