Jackson-Madison County Library marks World Rainforest Day

JACKSON, Tenn. — The Jackson-Madison County Public Library‘s Toddler Time was centered around World Rainforest Day on Thursday.

The children enjoyed stories and songs about the amazing creatures of the jungle. There was also playtime for little ones up to age five.

The theme for this year’s World Rainforest Day is “Conserve. Restore. Regenerate.” It contains the collective efforts required to ensure the long-term thriving existence of rainforests.

“This is the best part of my job because they are the most grateful audience. You don’t have to do very much. They’re just excited to be here, and they’re just excited for someone to pay attention to them. You can tell that you’re instilling a love of reading. That is a love of learning that will last the rest of their life,” said Jennifer Kilburn, the Children’s Librarian.

The next event at the library is Drawing with Rich. It will be held Friday, June 30 at 10:30 a.m.
