Meet Some Cold Blooded Characters June 12, 2019

On Thursday, June 20, the Myrtlewood Room at the Coos Bay Library will host turtles, lizards, snakes and other interesting reptiles from International Reptile Rescue. Children and families can learn these incredible creatures up close during two presentation times: 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

International Reptile Rescue has been educating and entertaining kids and adults alike on how unique and “not-so-scary” most reptiles are once you get to know them. The goal is to create a level of comfort and safe respect towards reptiles while dispelling the myths that lead to that all-too-common fear and disgust. For more information about the event at the Library, contact Rebecca Westmark at
