On Saturday, June 27th at 2:00 in the afternoon the Cook Memorial Library will present an exciting hands-on interactive program called Close Encounters of the Reptile Kind. This program brings 22 different frogs, snakes, lizards and other reptiles to meet adults and children of all ages. The presentation explores characteristics of reptiles, their habits and habitats, and methods of survival in the wild. Participants will learn about endangered species and discover why these animals are an important part of our eco-system.
This 60 minute program presented by Reptiles On the Move, features some unusual creatures such as bearded dragon lizards, a 25 pound African tortoise named Toby, blue tongue skinks and a 10 foot albino Python named Luka. This is a program not to be missed!
The Cook Memorial Library is located at 93 Main Street in Tamworth village. For more information call 323-8510.
This program is sponsored in part by the Byrne Foundation, CHILIS, the Cogswell Benevolent Trust, the NH Library Association and the NH State Library.
