Kewaunee Public Library held its Petting Zoo on August 11.
The library collaborated with its local FFA students, who brought their animals, and the FFA brought the pens. They featured area 4-H State Fair Champion rabbit hoppers, just back from showing at the State Fair.
The library also collaborated with an area veterinarian clinic that has kittens available for adoption. The weather was beautiful this year and the library had an amazing turnout. (photos by Carol Petrina, Kewaunee Public Library)
