As the summer reading program at Dawson County Library continues, its momentum continues rising as more and more kids participate in weekly programs on Wednesdays. The Wildlife Wonders show June 27 was no exception, bringing in the largest crowd this summer. Nearly 160 kids gathered together, excited to meet the special animal guests that Tom Bennett brought with him from the North Georgia Zoo in Cleveland. The zoo is home to 400 exotic animals and while the zoo is open to the public, Bennett said they specialize in bring animals out into the community at libraries, churches, festivals and parties.
