The Albuquerque BioPark in coordination with the Public Library Albuquerque and Bernalillo County is bringing the zoo to your local library. Over the next year the BioPark will be bringing great activities and live animals to select branches exploring life cycles and behaviors of the animal world.
How Children Participate:
Some of the events will be booths in the library that are open for walk up participation, others will require advance registration due to limited space or the animals needs. Please check the event listing to determine if registration is required.
