Lots of unusual critters at the library but no one squirmed

Photos and story by Monty Siekerman
Kids loved the reptile program sponsored by the Ada Public Library and held at Community Health Professionals on Tuesday afternoon.

Nearly 100 people attended the program and could "pet" such things as snakes and tortoises while Keith Gisser described the reptiles...where they live, what they eat, how big they get, how long they live Gisser brought a dozen reptiles with him, all rescued creatures, which are given a home at Herps Alive near Cleveland.

Horsie meet horsie...at the Ada Public Library summer reading program kickoff at the library on Saturday.

A good crowd was on hand to sign up for the program to read about horses, stuffed and otherwise.

There were rabbits, chickens, K9 dogs, face painting and more at the library. And, inside there are plenty of books about animals, how to do face painting...just about any subject you can dream about.
