Zoo to You Brings Wildlife to Local Libraries

This week, the S.B. Public Library System will bring amazing animal ambassadors from ecosystems around the world to children in Santa Barbara—all without having to leave their own community. Zoo to You is a “wildlife on wheels” program coming to a library near you—and bringing creatures like bears, boa constrictors, bald eagles, bugs, big cats, and more.
