Kids check out animals at Groton library
Groton — One might expect to find animals in the pages of the books at a library, not necessarily the real thing in the flesh (and fur).
But on Thursday, animals from Tripledale Farm of Guilford visited Bill Memorial Library in Groton. The program allowed kids to check out — visit with and pet, that is, not take home — llamas, goats, donkeys and alpacas.
The petting zoo was part of the library's ongoing summer programs. For more events, including outdoor story times, visit www.billmemorial.org.
