Today we welcome guest blogger, Jackie Narkiewicz!:
Patrons from the Copiague Memorial Public Library and two intrepid librarians, Stefanie Gangone and myself, visited the Bronx Zoo on Wednesday, July 20 for the day. It was a sweltering, hazy, hot and humid day in the City, but that didn’t stop our group from enjoying all the sights and sounds of the Bronx Zoo. We saw a variety of animals from frolicking sea lions (I was jealous of the water they were swimming in), to waddling penguins (I wonder what they thought of the heat), to wrestling Russian Brown Bears (they were wrestling in water – again I was jealous).
It was a nice trip, but I would recommend NOT going on a Wednesday during the summer because it is “Free Day” and the Zoo is full of camps, daycares, youth groups, and even libraries!
