Summer slithers in with reptile visit


LibrarySummer Reading Programs set to run all summer long

June 23, 2018 — Richard Ritchey, the Oregon Reptile Man, delighted a room full of youngsters and adults Thursday in the Bromley room at the Siuslaw Public Library. The presentation was the third installment in the library’s “Let’s Rock!” Summer Reading Program. The Bromley room was filled to capacity with an attentive audience. Ritchey brought 17 members of his scaly troop for the performance. Snakes, lizards and tortoises of differing species and sizes were shown to the crowd. The Reptile encouraged volunteers to assist with the presentation, encouraging them to handle and interact with the animals while classmates and family looked on.
