Nonie’s Ark sails into Crestview Public Library at 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, April 28.

Nonie’s Ark Animal Encounters provide a wildly educating and entertaining Family Library Time. Nonie’s Ark is a hands-on show. That means you can touch the animals! If you love animals and like to be up close and personal with them, Nonie’s Ark is perfect for you!

Who is Nonie? An edutainer. She’s part educator and part entertainer. She has an extensive background in Zoo Animal Technology and Wildlife Education, and her fondest joy is helping children learn about wildlife.

This free event is sponsored by the Okaloosa County Recycling Office.

Attendees must be age four or older. Registration is recommended due to limited seating.

Call 682-4432 or come to the Crestview Public Library, 1445 Commerce Drive, to register or ask questions.
