Jenkinson's Aquarium visits the library!
On Febraury 8th we had a very special visitor at our Court House Library Branch. Her name was Saba, which means 7 in Swahili, and she is an African penguin who resides at Jeninson's Aquarium in Pt. Pleasant, New Jersey. They have an entire African penguin habitat, but they also travel with the penguins (one at a time) in order to teach people about the species and penguins in general. We learned a lot and Saba seemed to enjoy visiting with us!
Fun fact: Penguins poop often! The aquarium staff say out of a 9 hour day, they spend about 4 hours cleaning up penguin poop, and that penguins in the wild let their guano build up in order to dig into it to make safe nests to lay their eggs.
