Library participating in Golden Ticket Bananza

BEACON FALLS — Beacon Falls Library is participating in the Beardsley Zoo’s Golden Ticket Bananza to celebrate the arrival of a new pair of black-handed spider monkeys at the zoo.

Five hundred golden ticket bananas will be hidden in books at libraries in 18 participating towns, including Beacon Falls. On Saturday, children and their families are invited to participating libraries to search through books on monkeys, both fiction and non-fiction, in the children’s book departments to find the tickets. Prizes include one free child’s birthday party, free zoo passes for families and individuals, and free monkey plush toys. There is one grand prize of a behind-the-scenes tour at the zoo.

For information, call Beacon Falls Library at 203-729-1441.
