Performance at the Library

Summer Library Reading Program 2023 Presents:

Barn Hill Preserve Delaware
Summer Reading may be ending, but the fun continues from August 20th until September 30th with Barn Hill Preserve, home to over 35 species of exotic animals including two-toed sloths, red kangaroos, otters, an aardvark and more! Check with your Delaware Public Library for dates & times!

Barn Hill Preserve provides fun and educational programs featuring our animal ambassadors. We strive to share our knowledge and animal ambassadors with the community in order to educate the public about these amazing animals and conservation.

For these library programs, we will bring 5 of our smaller animal ambassadors (such as a kangaroo joey, hedgehog, bearded dragon, tortoise, etc.) with us to each library and will have a roughly 45 minute presentation with time for questions and some interaction with the animals depending on the group size so as not to overwhelm the animals.

During our program, participants will learn about things such as the animal’s diets, habitat, social behaviors, defenses, etc.

The nationwide theme this year is All Together Now, and our animals all come together to help teach the community.
