Library Program

The John Ball Zoo’s Library Traveling Zoo Program will consist of a 30-40 minute live animal presentation with animal biofacts (i.e. skulls, furs, shells, etc) and a take-home bookmark. Programs are available year round to all public libraries and are best suited for individuals 5 years of age and up. We recommend the number of participants to be 150 or less.

Program fees are $80 per program plus an additional $1.00 per mile travel fee (includes mileage and staffing cost). We have adjusted the fee structure to more accurately charge every library regardless of the location. All mileage will be calculated using www.maps.google.com. *If you are able to book in conjunction with other neighboring libraries, you can split the travel fee.*
