Summer Library Program Options

*NEW* for 2021: Summer Reading Program “Tails and Tales”

Are you with a library looking for fun ways to enhance your summer reading program? Then the NEW Zoo has a WILD solution for you! With the 2021 Summer Reading theme of “Tails and Tales,” our virtual “Zoo to You” experiences will fit in perfectly with your summer programming.

Just for libraries, this summer we’re offering customized “a la carte” animal videos that you can share with your audience in person, at a hosted viewing event, or virtually, by providing your families with a link to a video they can view from the comfort of their own homes. Each Tails and Tales Zoo Video will be approximately 30 minutes long and feature stories about zoo animals with amazing tails. Your audience will see each animal up-close and learn about their unique adaptations for survival in the wild. All you need to do is select which four animals you’d like featured in your video, tell us how you’d like your viewers addressed, and we’ll take care of all the details! We’ll upload the final video to a private YouTube page and provide you with a link that you can choose to share with your library families or keep for your own in-person viewing session.


  • $150 per 30-minute video
  • Optional upgrades available, described below


  • Final Video will be around 30 minutes long and includes:
    • FOUR creatures in your presentation (listed below)
    • Personalized introduction and conclusion
    • Segments contain information built for the whole family—good for all ages!
    • A private video link will be shared with you upon completion. You can choose how your audience view the video, at an in-person “viewing party” at your library, or from the comfort of their own homes
      • Due to filming and editing needs, please allow at least 2 weeks for production when requesting

Optional Upgrades:
