The final Summer Library Reading Program will be Thursday, July 23. Extreme Animals: Animal Heroes Unmasked will present a program at the Hollis Civic Center at 10 a.m. and at the Altus Community Center at 2 p.m.
This will be the third time that Extreme Animals has been to the Southern Prairie Library System and the staff is always excited to see them return. They will be bringing 5 to 6 animals with them for the whole family to enjoy. Extreme Animals has been exhibiting exotic animals for educational and entertainment purposes for several years, as well as participating in and facilitating animal rescue. They take animals that most other places do not have the room or experience to handle. This year, they will bring Animal Superheroes like you’ve never seen before! Their newest program: “Animals Unmasked” will feature heroes of the wild for the 2015 summer library reading programs. Animal Heroes Unmasked will showcase exotic wildlife from all over the world that possess very unique superhero abilities. Enhanced adaptations for sight, sound, touch, strength and movement allow these animals to overcome impossible barriers. This will be one the most extraordinary animal programs you have ever experienced! Not only will you learn about the animals’ super powers, you will find out how you can be a superhero for animals in need. You never know when the next animal conservationist might be sitting in the audience and conservation is the key to preserving our wildlife. Extreme Animals is an Oklahoma based fully licensed and insured Zoo-to-You program that will educate the audience in a wildly entertaining atmosphere
Immediately following both programs, Extreme Animals will present a Teen Program for children ages 13 to 18. The program at the Hollis Civic Center will run from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and at the Altus Community Center from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Extreme Animals’ presentation is funded in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) administered through the Oklahoma Department of Libraries. The IMLS is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 122,000 libraries and 17,500 museums.
