MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - Families at Sibley Park got an up-close look at some slimy, scaly friends.

Blue Earth County Library hosted zookeeper Jim Gerholdt for his “Remarkable Reptiles Presentation,” an educational event featuring an array of reptiles.

“I show turtles, snakes and lizards, try to talk about some of the Minnesota species and try to let people know that not everything is bad like most people think, and the job with the snakes is to bring people over from the dark side,” said Gerholdt.

This day was part of various events hosted by the library as part of their summer reading programs.

The next event at the Blue Earth County Library is a petting zoo featuring pigs and ponies from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday.
