The MPL Community Room hosted "Animals of the North Pole," a program presented by Silly Safaris. Our wildlife commentator, who was dressed like one of Santa's elves, showed many intriguing animals that live in the Arctic Circle (such as an Arctic Fox and Eurasian Eagle Owl), and some that don't (like a bullfrog and a tortoise). He was funny and informative, which is a tough combination to master. The audience of youngsters, teenagers, and adults was enthralled and entertained.
Next we listened to the Central Indiana Folk Music & Mountain Dulcimer Society performing in the Library's Grand Hall. Although you can't see me in the photo (below), I'm sitting in the front seat to the right of where "Flat" Dovydas is standing.
