Thank you Simon The Penguin!
Thank you to the Newport Aquarium’s Wave Foundation and all of the patrons that came out to the Park Branch today.
Simon, an adorable African Penguin was visiting and teaching young and old all about her kind.
Thank you also to the Friends of the Clark County Public Library for their financial support, without which we would not have been able to host such unique programs.
