Great Plains Zoomoblie visited the Canby Public Library on Saturday, Aug. 28th. It was sponsored by the Canby Lions Club. The Zoomoblie brought with them a bull nose snake, chinchilla, hedgehog and a tarantula. We were told about each animal and got to touch them. It was a very interesting program.

Minnesota fish

On Wednesday, August 18th the Canby Public Library had "Fish Families" and "Fish Sense" programs. Given by MinnAqua Program. Kids in attendance learned how to classify fish into
groups called families and how many fish families are in Minnesota. Then they got to explore the six senses of fish and do a fish print called Gyotaku (GEE-OH-TAH-KOO) an ancient Japanese art form.
