WARRACKNABEAL’S library was overrun by wild creatures on July 5 when Jamie and Kim’s Mobile Zoo stopped in for a visit.
The library threw open their doors which saw a large crowd come along to take part in the unique presentation from the Ararat based company encouraging people to become involved in saving Australian wildlife.
Animals included two lizards, a snake, wombat, dingo, glider possum and a frog who the participants were able to get up close and personal with and make a new friend during the presentation.
“It is the ﬁrst time the Warracknabeal Library has held such an event,” Librarian
Kelsea Wall said following the activity
It is a way of encouraging people, especially children, to learn about animals and how to use the library as a resource for research,” she said
The event was a resounding success with 52 people of all ages attending.
“It’s the biggest event we’ve held since the renovation,” Kelsea said.
“We’ve received a lot of positive feedback from people, specially parents.”
“People have posted photos to Facebook and ﬂooded social media with stories about the day,” she said.
Jamie and Kim’s mobile zoo visits Kinders right through to aged-care facilities to share their love of Australian wild life and aims to help save the animals from
