Zoo to You
It’s hard to muster up courage for the zoo when it’s 110 degrees in the shade, but fear not — the Phoenix Zoo is coming to Chandler’s Sunset Library with a free, hands-on educational presentation with live animals. Ticket prices for similar programs at the zoo can run as high as $25 a person, making this event — designed for kids 5 and older — a real bargain. It is expected to fill up quickly, and tickets are required. The free tickets become available at Sunset Library’s info desk Saturday, June 21. The library is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, but families are limited to six tickets per household, so if you need several tickets, plan on picking them up Saturday morning — there’s a good chance tickets will be “sold out” by the end of the day.

Well, I never thought I'd ever be so tall in my life. The weather really is nice up here! To start off this speech, I'd like to tell a joke that's near and dear to my heart.
