Bring Children's Literature to Life!

We offer a variety of programs that are perfect for your Summer Reading Kickoff and other events.

We understand that planning monthly library programs for children can be tricky. Chamberlin can help you host an educational event that the whole community will enjoy. Animals play a huge role in children’s literature.   Whether you're reading the Little Blue Truck, The Big Red Barn, Charlotte's Web or our favorite Llama Llama Red Pajama.  Petting zoos create an excellent opportunity for libraries to introduce children to the live counterparts of the beloved characters of their literature.

Chamberlin has been working with libraries for over 19 years. We will be happy to help you decide what services will meet your library’s needs and budget.

 Our most popular library party package. Includes two hand-led ponies (or horses) to ride and a 10-12 animal petting zoo with food for the animals, face painting & balloon twisting.

  •  You may sell the grain and keep the proceeds
  • You may substitute the face painting & balloons for an additional pony for back or cart rides.  Pony carts are fun and we can accommodate about 40-50 children each hour with a cart. 

Complete Petting Zoo Package

Includes alpaca or llama, calf, donkey or miniature horse, goats, sheep, ducks, chickens & bunnies. Children get to feed the animals!

Limited time offer, include one pony for back rides or face paint and balloons (FREE)

Hand-led ponies or horses or Pony Cart Rides

Deciding how many ponies you’ll want depends on your crowd size. Libraries usually include 1 or 2 hand-led ponies or horses. A good rule of thumb is that each pony can give up to 20 - 23 rides in an hour.  Our pony cart is great for young children who may not wish to sit on the ponies back.


 This affordable package is a great way to bring animals to your event.  It includes 6-8 small animals that may easily be set up inside on tarps or outside, face painting and balloon twisting.  

All of our packages include; a professional bubble machine, music, lawn games, tent (heated if needed)

We recommend you book this package for one hour unless guests are arriving at different times or you are expecting more than 20 children.
