HOOKSETT — Wildlife Encounters, a community education program based around presentations of live animals, will be at the Hooksett Public Library from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, March 23.

Wildlife Encounters will feature a selection of the program’s “ambassador animals.” Those who attend will be able to have a hands-on experience with some of the animals, guided by a trained wildlife educator. People also will be able to take pictures with an animal. Library staff can provide the photographer and a print for $1, or guests can use their own devices.

Wildlife Encounters is the second of three Wildlife Matters programs hosted by the library, Bear-Paw Regional Greenways and the Hooksett Conservation Commission.
