    Mystic — Taylor Enwa, a zookeeper from Animal Adventures in Bolton, Mass., introduced kids to several different kinds of animals Tuesday during a program at the Mystic Noank Library.

    The animals included a fox, chinchilla, hedgehog, porcupine and goat.

    The event was funded by the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut, which provided funds for the library to put on multiple animal-centered programs this summer.
