You can find so many amazing things at the local public library, and not just in the pages of their books. Sure, they've got reading material on everything from aardvarks to zebras, but the really special library moments involve a little something extra. Take, for example, the Petzapalooza event going on at the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library, 1515 Young St., from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. It's an absolute treasure trove of information about pets -- adopting them, caring for them and even grieving for them after they're gone. This year's event features crafts and story time for the kids, as well as booths on guinea pig and rabbit rescue, the Metroplex Animal Coalition, puppy mill information and more. Plus, as with so many wonderful services of the public library, the event is totally free! For more information, call 214-760-1606 or visit dallaslibrary.org.
