Summer reading goes wild


Snakes, frogs and turtles ventured to the Blair Public Library on June 7 to check out what the Summer Reading Program was all about.

The library's Summer Reading Program officially kicked off June 6 and the next day, the library welcomed the cast of creatures as part of the Papio-Missouri River Natural Resources District's (NRD) Animal Adaptation presentation.

NRD natural resource educator Kaylyn Kelley showed the children gathered ways certain animals found in Nebraska adapt to survive harsh weather conditions and predators. Attendees had the chance to get up-close to a variety of amphibians and lizards and even got to pet a few.

The reading program rolls on throughout the summer with special presentations each Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at the library, as well as a host of additional activities and events.
