Libraries

Summer 2017

Encourage children's imaginations to come alive by inviting some real animals to your library this summer.  All programs are approximately 45 minutes in length and include four live animals.  Each program is $90 plus mileage for libraries over 35 miles from the zoo.  We encourage libraries in the same area to coordinate dates and times so mileage charges can be split.  We are happy to visit three facilities on a trip and travel the entire state of Iowa!

Programs for Summer 2017:

Show and Tell

Ignite the audience’s curiosity with this traditional live animal program. The Show and Tell program is designed to accommodate a large audience of all ages and features four live animals to share during an interactive presentation. Children will be encouraged to answer thought-provoking questions about the animals and will have the opportunity to ask questions of their own.

World for Wildlife

Join a Blank Park Zoo educator and four animals from the zoo’s education department to talk about ways in which we can make the world a better place for all creatures, great and small! Small changes in the way we live can make the world of difference for our animal friends in the wild. This fun and interactive program will show you just how easy it can be!

Animal Architects    

Just like us, animals live in different kinds of homes. Some prefer a hole in the ground, while others build nests high in the trees.  It takes special skills and adaptations to build the perfect home in the wild. Join a Blank Park Zoo educator and four animals from the zoo’s education department to talk about everyone’s favorite place – home!
