Wide-eyed children crowded into the Riford Library on July 27 for the chance to meet critters from all over the world as part of the library’s summer reading program, “One World, Many Stories.” A crocodile, a wallaby, and an armadillo were just a few of the special guests at the Walk on the Wild Side event, which was presented by Wild Wonders. The show was one of many events hosted by the library this summer to keep children visiting and reading. The summer reading program ends at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10 with refreshments, prizes, games and surprises for participants.
