If I ran the zoo

I'd bring it to Bluffton every summer - that's what the library did

No need to visit the zoo - because it came to Bluffton.

Toledo Zoo education representatives Nate Dick and Caroline Bearss, brought several animals from Toledo to the Bluffton Public Library on Monday.

Among the visitors were a python, a Mexican porcupine and a tarantula.

The program's focus was on how animals adapt to their surroundings. The event was part of the library's summer schedule of special activities.

Many activities are planned this summer at the library. Friday's events inlcude a craft, culture and cuisine program with Ayane Hida at 2 p.m.
