This week, one of our favorites visits the Library on Thursday, June 24 at 10:30 a.m. – Wild Wings Raptor Recovery! Come sit on the lawn on the east side of the Library while the experienced crew weaves between you with their “education birds” – raptors that can no longer live in the wild. There will be plenty of opportunities to observe and photograph these magnificent birds.
