June 27, 2019 - The Fannie Brown Booth Library is already in their fourth week of the 2019 Summer Reading/Learning program. Creature Teacher will be their star attraction this week. She educates the children on the animals and allows the children to interact with some of them.
Creature Teacher has been educating children about animals for 20 years and holds over 600 shows per year. When the original owner retired in 2011, Belinda Henry became the new owner. She has been part of their Summer Program for several years. And as some will no doubt remember, she brought her kangaroo joey, JAXX, with her.
Creature Teacher will hold the program for the younger group (ages 4-8) on Thursday, June 27th, at 10:30 a.m. She will be there for the TWEEN program on the same date at 2:00 p.m.
The Summer Program is sponsored by the Center Noon Lions Club.
