Benjamin Bunny found a new home!

We are sad to say that Benjamin Bunny had to find a new  home.  Due to technical difficulties, Benjamin was not able to remain at the library.  Please remember Benjamin and all the fun we  had watching him, feeding him and loving him.  We know Benjamin will miss all of you too, but  his new home is bigger and better.  Benjamin will get more time out of his cage and actually be handled more often.  He will not be left alone overnight.  We are sure he will find ways to satisfy his curious nature by exploring his new surrounding.  So for now.  Bye, Benjamin.  We will miss you!
