Family Night @ the Library - A world of Animals

The Racine Public Library, 75 Seventh St., along with the Racine Zoological Gardens, will be hosting a Family Night at the Library  on December 15th at 6:30. The theme will be Animals of the World.  During this animal encounter, you will get up close and personal with mammals, amphibians, reptiles, birds and arthropods.  Learn about various animal adaptations and conservation issues.  This is a great program to "sample" all of the animal groups!  This program is filled with live animals and animal artifacts, and is open to all ages.  In addition, there will be a simple craft.

Registration is required for this free program.  To register for the event, contact the library at 262.636.9245 or visit the library's website at
