CANCELED!!! SNAKES coming to the library Monday, July 7th

Fascinated or scared to death by snakes?  >{:}=//\\//\\//\\=~ 

CANCELED!!!. MARK YOUR CALENDAR!  This is your chance to view and visit with our Serpentes reptile friends on Monday, July 7th.  FIRST, the Summer Reading kids & parents will see the snakes from 10:30 am to noon.  THEN, the public may come to view the snakes from 1 to 3 p.m.

This program is bought to the library by Snake Conservation, a small group of snake enthusiasts. Their goal is to educate people on the good things about snakes. Snakes help keep down the rodent population which in turn, keeps down the incidence of the plague and the hantavirus which have killed people in New Mexico. Did you know that rattlesnake venom is being used in heart and cancer drugs for humans? Snakes help to save human lives so the least we can do is help snakes exist in this world. Snake Conservation has snakes that reside in New Mexico; milksnakes, Great Plains rat snakes, garter snakes and many rescued bull snakes on exhibit to help people understand how worthwhile it is to save snakes and to show that snakes are wonderful and beautiful creatures. Additionally, Snake Conservation will talk about rattlesnake safety as well as general information and misinformation about snakes in New Mexico and how kids can help protect snakes.
