VOORHEES, NJ – August 2, 2013 – The Voorhees branch of the Camden County Library System hosted a visit on Saturday, July 20, 2013 for some critters from the Philadelphia Zoo that like to live underground. The Zoo brought four animals for kids to see, meet and learn about as part of the library’s summer reading theme of Dig into Reading for kids.

Over 40 kids and adults got to meet Camilla the Armadillo, a ferret named Emily, a legless lizard and an African bullfrog during the hour long library program, which was made possible by a summer reading grant from the New Jersey Library Association.
