The Friends of the Bridge City Public Library were happy to host Shangri La from Orange on Wednesday, June 9. 

Mel Moreau and Maxine the Barred Owl read “Owl Babies” and “Owl Moon” to more than 100 children. 

Ms. Moreau answered questions about owl habits, feeding, and how Maxine became a mascot for Shangri La.

Area youngsters are invited June 16 as the BC Library welcomes “Moody Gardens Traveling Rainforest Trunk”.
