Singing, dancing and story time enchant kids at Lords Park Zoo

About 50 kids and family members met under the hickory tree at Lords Park Zoo on Thursday for a Gail Borden Public Library story time.

Apropos to the setting, the tales featured tails, both in story and singalong, with books including "Mary Had A Little Lamb," followed by rendition of the song by a string quartet from Larkin High School.

The event was the last story time of the summer at the zoo, and featured a visit from the library's Book Bike, an environmentally-friendly and human-powered mobile library.
