Exeter Public Library held their Summer Reading Program Kick Off on Thursday, May 26 at the library with a special presentation.

They billed the event would feature things that have scales, are cold-blooded and don’t sweat and Jason Buresh of Czechland Pet out of Fairbury certainly delivered.

Buresh brought a variety of snakes, turtles and other reptiles and gave the attendees an educational morning talking about the habits and environment each of his reptiles enjoy.  The kids had the opportunity to touch the reptiles and ask lots of questions about their features.

The participants had a great time viewing the animals and learned a great deal about reptiles.


 Just a reminder: 

The Exeter Public library is all set to begin its summer reading program in June.  This year their theme will be "Friends Together Now!"

This program is for all ages (children under four need to be accompanied by an adult) and begins on June 13th.

The program will be on Tuesdays from 10 - 12 including June 13,20, and 27 then in July on the 18th, 25th and August 1.  Parents are encouraged to sign up their children by June 1st and bring them in to decorate a library tote bag.

This summer the program will include two interns from the state extension program and the 4H program and will feature lots of STEM projects and activities. In July the program on the 18th will feature "Jammin' Randy" which will be a music event.

The last scheduled meeting on August 1 will include a picnic for the participants.
