Petting Zoo fun!

November 5, 2010

We wrapped up our 2010 Marathon County Reads with animal fun in the Wausau library's garage.  Even though our READS selection, Seedfolks, is a book best suited for upper elementary through adult readers, we always include related activities for all ages, including children.  Over 250 people came to cuddle with kittens, bond with bunnies, and pet lots of other farm animals, including Duncan, the miniature Angus bull.  Our thanks to Allen Kraft from Kraft's Kuddly Kritters for bringing his farm menagerie to the library for all ages to enjoy.

If you have ideas for the book we should read for next year's READS program, we would love to hear your suggestions.  Click here to leave your READS comments and suggestions.
