Pretty Pony Parties, a family owned business was on hand to entertain the children with an array of animals as part of a Petting Zoo. It was a setting in which the children would be able to see first hand how delightful nature just happens to be as they were given the chance be around horses , a pony, a pig , goat and a rabbit . Being entertained in this instance created a great deal of enjoyment for not only the children in attendance , but also for the adults who accompanied their family members or those in their custody. Smiles and laughs all around were seen on the youngest faces as well as the parents.

The kids were also provided with the chance to have some with arts and craft. Resident storyteller Mary-Ann oversaw this activity and the children having grown fond of her , knowing her by name , have always been keen to interact one of the library’s most beloved volunteers.
