We're having a book party & you're invited! Meet Plum, a sassy peacock at the Athensville Zoo, who is also a detective. Join us to read parts of the book & make a peacock fan. Registration required.

***NOTE:  Please register separately for each child planning to attend this program.***

When the Athensville Zoo peacocks are accused of stealing from the zoo visitors, Plum wants to solve the case and allow his peacock friends to roam the zoo freely again.  But Itch, a Ningbing, doesn't want that to happen at all.  Join us to explore this fun book by Matt Phelan and make a peacock fan.
