“One of (the library’s) main purposes is to support education and literacy,” Youth Services Librarian Phyllis Peter said. “And part of literacy for children is making those connections in the world between what they’re reading in books. Visiting the places and seeing the animals or objects that they read about in books is a great extension of the learning experience.”
