Today's Family Storytime contains a special outdoor treat: Join Ms. Anne inside in the FOL Community Room for animal stories, songs and dancing, and then directly afterwards, go outside to Bird Island Park and meet some animals and explore the park! Emily Montgomery of Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve is bringing three snakes and a terrapin for you to learn about and see up close, and then enjoy the beautiful weather and check out the park which has many fun activities in the month of October. Bird Island Park is located directly behind the Ponte Vedra Beach Branch Library - in the event of rain, the animal encounter will be held inside the library. Thank you to Bird Island Park for sponsoring this fun opportunity!
