Burrowing Owl Takes the Lead in Care for a Critter

Summer Reading Program participants have cast the most votes for the burrowing owl in the library’s Care for a Critter Contest!  If the owl maintains the lead for the rest of the summer, the library will adopt it from Akron Zoo.  Are you a fan of the gila monster or the coyote?  Then keep reading to earn votes to cast for your favorite!
