 ZOO BUDDIES


Zoo Buddies is a reading literacy program developed specifically for children ages 0-5 and their caregivers (parents, grandparents or teachers.) This program also encourages an early interest in science and helps caregivers cultivate environment stewardship early in a child's development.

Storytellers from the Marshall Public Library and the Portneuf District Library join us in this 30-45 minute program. Children and their caregivers will enjoy several animal stories and may also enjoy Animal Ambassador Presentations, an animal craft and/or a puppet show.
