LINCOLN - Since the Lincoln Public
Library couldn’t take the young readers in its summer reading
program “Paws to Read” to the zoo, LPL brought the zoo to the
library. Silly Safaris from Indianapolis brought a zoo’s worth of
animals to the library annex Thursday morning to entertain and
educate the young readers.
Thursday’s ringmaster, Lemur Levi, serves as Master of Ceremony
for one of five shows that Silly Safaris has traveling the country
from New York to Missouri. Levi’s aim is to keep the young readers
entertained with a fast paced and very funny explanation of his
animal friends, and to educate them about his animal charges.
All eyes in the audience, kids and parents, were on Levi while he
introduced them to the world’s largest owl, a Eurasian eagle owl, as
well as a legless lizard, an armadillo, and a very long boa
constrictor. The full house was fascinated.
Thursday of next week marks the final show of the summer for the
“Paws to Read” program. Contact the library staff for information
and to register, Youth Services (217) 732-5732.
