Does your kid love animals? If so, then you have an easy way to hook your kids on books. Fiction and non-fiction books about animals abound; we have plenty to offer to your future veterinarian.
The Adventuremobile brings a new animal to show-and-tell to your kids every week. From crawdads to baby chicks to cool bugs, we can inspire your young zoologist to explore the world of animals. There’s a different creature every week.
At the main library, spend some time at our birdwatching station near the dinosaur. There’s a handy poster for identifying the bird species you see.
Check out the bookshelves below for some of our favorite books on animals and the people who love them. From factual to fantastical, they’ll keep your animal-lover reading all summer long!
