Live! at the Library: Elmwood Park Zoo On Wheels!


Thursday, June 28, 11:00 AM
Ages 3-7*
Limit 100 total (adults and children)

* any child age 6 and under must be accompanied and closely supervised by an adult

Please join us in the large event room for "Sensational Animals." The staff of the Elmwood Park Zoo will bring live animals and touchable artifacts to the library to help us explore our five senses and how animals use their senses in similar or different ways.

This program will admit up to 100 people on a first- come basis, so please be prompt and be sure to allow enough time for parking. Any child age 6 and under must be accompanied and closely supervised by an adult. Admission is FREE, but you need a ticket. We will start handing out tickets at 10:30 am, and we will stop when we reach 100 or when the program starts, whichever comes first.

Elmwood Park Zoo was established in 1924 and is operated by the Norristown Zoological Society, a non-profit organization whose mission is to foster an appreciation of wildlife and their habitat that will inspire active participation in conservation. Under the Society’s careful management, Elmwood has attained elite status as one of only 225 institutions accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. More information about the Elmwood Park Zoo can be found on their web site.

"Sensational Animals" is brought to you through the generosity of The Friends of Tredyffrin Public Library.
