We’ll also give them the chance to win their very own Animal Lovers Pack – which includes a family pass to Auckland Zoo and Kelly Tarlton’s – by taking up our internet Animania! quiz challenge.

We’ve lots of fun activities happening at your local library. Check out some of the highlights below:

o When you visit Glen Innes Community Library at 10.30am on Wednesday 5 July, meet Moss the Dancing Dog and his friends and join in some doggie craft activities. While you’re there, don’t forget to enter the ‘design-a-dog’ competition where you’ll be in to win some cool movie tickets.
