2014 Nfld Library Spring Break Event_0.jpg

The Northfield Public Library is celebrating spring break with some fun activities!  

At 10 am on Tuesday, March 25th we will be hosting the RAD Zoo from Owatonna. Their  program will include between ten and twelve fascinating reptiles and amphibians, including frogs, a salamander, turtles, lizards, snakes, and a small crocodilian. At the conclusion of the presentation they will provide an opportunity for you to come up and take a closer look at the animals, including a chance to touch one or two of the animals in a controlled setting, after which they provide hand sanitizer for everyone. RAD Zoo's Jamie and Melissa Pastika have a combined experience of more than twenty years as professional animal keepers working at some of the finest zoological institutions in the country including the Jacksonville Zoo, Busch Gardens, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. They both have Bachelor of Science degrees, Jamie in zoo-science and Melissa in biology. This program is made possible by a SELCO Legacy Grant.  It will be held in the library's meeting room. No charge!
