Derry News

---- — LONDONDERRY — These are the creatures right in the backyard.

Some live animals paid a visit to Leach Library last week for an afternoon lesson. It gave children a chance to get an up-close look at animals that may scurry through their own backyards.

The presentation was hosted by Creature Teachers, educators who visit libraries and other community events to show off their animals and teach about their habitats and lifestyles.

Children were able to get up close to a turtle, fisher and a fox.

Leach Library hosts a full schedule of events for children, including story hours and special activities. Call the library at 432-1127 for information.
