Selected BPL Branches to Celebrate World Turtle Day, May 9-24

by Mollie McFarland, Children's Librarian, Springville Road Regional Branch Library

"Shellebrate" World Turtle Day at your local library in May! Jumanji the Russian tortoise will make an appearance at selected Birmingham Public Library locations as we talk about the difference between turtles and tortoises and the impact each have on their local ecosystems. A craft and movie will follow each presentation.

A special trio of turtles from Pet Supplies Plus will visit the Springville Road Regional Branch Library's program on May 9 to show off their skills on land and water. Learn about their natural habitat, diet, and personality.
