Sparks' Ark coming to Thomaston Public Library, April 22
THOMASTON — A free presentation by Sparks' Ark will held at the Thomaston Public Library on April 22. Josh Sparks, who lives in the greater Portland area, has been working with and loving animals for 30 years. The Ark is a private reserve where animals are rescued and rehabilitated.
Spark's programs are interactive, with live animals often including a hedgehog, fox, bat, owl and snake. The Ark people stress animal safety, and respect for each animal, a fitting program for 2017 Earth Day.
Thomaston Public Library is able to offer this free program to all nature lovers, young and old, as part of a grant received to offer family activities to its community. The grant, from the Maine State Library, is funded by taxpayers in Maine who indicate a donation on their income tax forms. Thomaston Public Library was selected to receive funding to support programs offered free to its patrons, neighbors and friends.
This exciting event will be held in the gymnasium in the library building at 11 a.m. Refreshments will be served. For additional information, contact the library at 354-2453.
