SELMA – If you haven’t been to your local library this summer, you’re missing out.

The Fresno County Library system offers a host of free summer reading programs for children and adults.

Selma’s Marie Angie Bustinza shared a picture of her son, Adrick Bustinza, where he was brave enough to get in line to touch exotic animals brought in with the E & M’s Reptile Family program.

“After watching other kids touch the walking stick, bullfrog and bearded dragon, Adrick asked if he could go touch the animals,” his mother wrote. “I told him he had to raise his hand really high to be called up and on just first try he did! He was so excited after. He said the lizard feels good and stuck out his tongue like the lizard does to smell.”
