Reptiles invade library

Jimmy Stiles holds out a lizard as children learned about native reptiles Thursday at the Brewton Public Library

Jimmy and Sierra Stiles, wildlife biologists sponsored by Southern Pine Electric Cooperative brought containers filled with reptiles to the Brewton Public Library Thursday as part of the summer reading program.

The couple made their annual appearance in the Brewton area with three presentations Thursday in the “Dream Big, Read” summer reading program at Brewton Public Library.

Children were given an opportunity to learn about reptiles that are native to our area ranging from lizards, snakes, turtles and frogs. Although the goal of the Stiles’ is to educate students about living in harmony with reptiles, children looked forward to touching and holding some of the specimans shared during the presentation.

The Brewton Public Library Summer Reading Program ended with Thursday’s finale event. ForĀ  details on other programs at the library, contact any member of the staff at 867-4626.
