Abbeville Memorial Library’s Summer Reading Program 2015

“Every Hero Has a Story”, was a great success! 

Week One began with Brian Blazer’s Amazing Animals.   Brian is extremely knowledgeable about animals, their behavior and their environments. He is a great presenter and teacher with a wonderful ability to keep adults and children totally engaged with his humorous and informative interactions with the animals and his audience!
