Children and adults alike have the opportunity to get up close and personal and even get “hands-on” with these animals as part of a safe, educational, and entertaining experience.

Friday’s program is at 11 a.m. ET at the Eastpoint Branch Library at 160 Hickory Dip Road, and at 2 p.m. at the Carrabelle Branch Library at 311 St. James Avenue, which is U.S. 98.

Library programs are free and open to the public and participants do not need a library card to participate.

During the Summer Reading Program, both library branches have fun activities for both kids and adults. The theme is “Adventure Begins At Your Library”; and will feature the outdoors. There are reading logs, prizes and incentives for all ages (including adults).

All sorts of animals get in on the act. [ Franklin County Public Libraries ]
