Everyone’s heard the saying that “you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover”, right? Stop by the Auburn Public Library now through Valentine’s Day for a blind date.
It’s easy…simply pick a wrapped package that catches your eye from the display on the main level (no peeking), check it out, bring it home and unwrap, and read or watch.
Give a surprise a try and see if you can fall in love with a new type of book or movie.

Learning more about their role in the ecosystem will help to demonstrate why we should protect these animals instead of fearing them.
