The Bird Brain Reading Room

The "Bird Brain Reading & Activity Center" opens at World Bird Sanctuary.

We have a new attraction at World Bird Sanctuary!  The "Bird Brain Reading and Activity Center" has been slowly developed over the last few months.  It is located in the Olga Reyes Memorial Building along the exhibit line, near the Bald Eagle and White Pelican Exhibits.

The Reading and Activity Center is full of donated books relating to wildlife, conservation, animals and other nature-related topics. There are also coloring activities, puppets and a puppet theater and numerous reference books for visitors to enjoy.  We encourage kids, teens and adults to take a book, read it, enjoy it and learn from it.  Then, pass it along and share it, or return it for other visitors to enjoy.

Are you passionate about wildlife and helping people learn?
The Reading and Activity Center is currently open on Saturdays from 10am to 3pm.  We are recruiting docents who would like to volunteer in our reading room on Sundays and during weekdays in the summer.  This volunteer opportunity would be perfect for supporters who love World Bird Sanctuary and support our mission but are not able or interested in working directly with the birds.  If you want to be a pioneer docent at our library or activity center, click here to download a volunteer application form.

We are also taking donations of new or used nature-related books, magazines and games for the library.  These can be brought to WBS or mailed to:
