The Garden Valley District Library had a Critter Day at the Library. Lots of people showed up to see anything from bats to snakes and other farm and domestic animals. Kids got to touch and feed some animals. Library Program Director has lots of programs like this where all ages can come and learn.  Hart has introduced robots to young and old, played games, made chocolate truffles and always encourages reading as part of the programs offered.  Come see what a library can do….it might surprise you.
