Kid Power Brings Animals and Inspiring Message to Waite Park Library

Kid Power Brings Animals and Inspiring Message to Waite Park Library

Jack the Australian Bearded Dragon and Winston the Chinchilla visited the Waite Park branch with their person Rachael Kroog as part of her Kid Power program on August 7. Rachael’s inspiring message to open your mind and heart by reading was shared through uplifting stories and upbeat songs. After the program, Jack stopped by the public service desk to read a little about himself and visit with Branch Manager Marilyn Patterson.

Jack, Winston, and Rachael visited two other GRRL branches on Tuesday: Melrose and Sauk Centre. Rachael’s program was funded in part with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage (Legacy) Fund.
