Wild things

Coming on the tail end of spring break, the NorthEast-Millerton Library paired up with the Sharon Audubon to present a Spring Break Animal Safari on Friday, April 19. The library opened its doors to a packed house of young animal enthusiasts and a handful of animal guests. Led by Seasonal Environmental Educator Erica Clark, children and their parents learned about animals and admired a few along the way, including a box turtle, a cockroach, a bearded dragon and even a ball python.
