The James V. Brown Library in Williamsport has partnered with Clyde Peeling's Reptiland to offer three Reading with Reptiles events.

Here's how it works: take out a nonfiction book about animals at the library during the week before each session, and get a 50% off ticket voucher for Clyde Peeling's Reading with Reptiles program at Reptiland! The first 25 kids who check out a nonfiction animal book during the week before each session will also receive a free admission ticket from the Youth Services desk.

The three sessions currently scheduled are:

  • Saturday, January 11 at 11:00 a.m.: a reading of And the Bullfrogs Sing: A Life Cycle Begins, featuring an up-close look at real American and African bullfrogs.
  • Saturday, February 8 at 11:00 a.m.: a reading of I Wanna Iguana, with a chance to meet and pet one of the zoo's fan-favorites, Gwangi the Cuban Rock Iguana.
  • Saturday, March 14 at 11:00 a.m.: A reading of The Bird that Couldn't Fly, with a chance to meet Darwin, the zoo's Great Horned Owl who, like the bird in the story, cannot fly. Guests will also be invited to take a walk through Parakeet Landing.

If reptiles, amphibians, and birds aren't your thing, why not check out other library programs?
