Farm fun at the Westland Area Library

The Westland Area Library can get a little bit wild in the summer with all of its programs that are designed to educate and entertain children on their prolonged break from school, but the popular destination on the westside became a literal zoo as it welcomed nearly a dozen farm animals who were ready to engage – mostly – with a curious and captivated audience. In the late morning on July 11, patrons were able to get up close and personal with a variety of furry, snorty, and webbed creatures courtesy of Bring the Farm to You, a Centerburg-based educational organization that allows individuals of all ages to have some good “farm fun experiences that inspire and excite.” While most of the animals on display wanted to be looked at rather than touched, these rabbits did not mind the attention that was paid to them, especially from 3-year-old Averee Whiteman who told them how cute and cuddly they were as she was being held up by her brother, Maddox, and her mother, Heather Hall.
