Discover something FISHY at the library!

What kind of fish only swims at night?

A starfish! (read more in Animal Jokes by Pam Rosenberg)

You can see a real live clownfish at your library! Youth Services is proud to be home of the marine animals living in our salt water tank. Come by to see the chocolate chip starfish move slowly across the shell floor. Observe the Astrea snails grazing around the tank as part of the clean-up crew. Try to find the camouflaged Longnose Hawkfish. Be captured by the striking regal beauty of the Blue Tang (quite possibly known to your children as 'Dory' from the movie Finding Nemo) and watch the gentle nature of the Banggai Cardinalfish.

See if you can find them all:
Percula Clownfish, Banggai Cardinalfish, Chocolate Chip starfish, Longnose Hawkfish, Astrea Snails, Turbo Snails, Margarita Snails, Blue Tang, and Yellowtail Damsels.

After seeing these amazing animals, head to the book shelves for these books or these books and discover all things fishy!
