Bria has the fact sheets memorized and is begging me to make sure we are there every Tuesday morning to see it be fed. (It is fed a cricket every week.)
So, I just got this email that says that patrons are complaining about the tarantula (I do understand why, but come on peeps! It's educational, and the kids adore it!) and that the library has until next Wednesday to "make a convincing case for keeping our beautiful new friend." The main thing is to find out if other libraries in the nation have a library pet.
So help me out, here.
Does your library have a pet? Or do you know of other libraries that do? What kind of animal is it? What is the name of the library? You can email me if you don't want to leave the answer in the comments...lalakme at gmail dot com.
I thank you very much for your help in this. And so do my kids! They will be so sad if the tarantula has to go somewhere else....they haven't even had a chance to vote on her name yet!
Oh, and the picture is from the internet. Our tarantula is much smaller...she's still just a baby yet.
