TARPS Kittens go to the Library

17 Jul

Today (Thursday July 17) our volunteers (Mary, Grace, Eva, Malia and Ilana) visited with the group at the Summer Lunch at the Library program at Rockingham Free Public Library on 65 Westminster St., Bellows Falls.

Sam Maskell, RFPL’s youth librarian, said everyone enjoyed TARPS visit and learned a great deal about the care and handling of young animals. Children aged from 6 to 10 were able to take away some important information and play with some lively kittens.

Here are some photos taken at the event.
