Join author, conservationist, photographer and primatologist Beth Armstrong on Zoom for a rare glimpse into the complicated lives of captive gorillas through her new book Voices from the Ape House. Beth's many years as a gorilla keeper allowed her the privilege to observe the daily lives of this endearing, sensitive and socially savvy species.
Beth Armstrong began her career in the zoo field as a keeper at the Columbus Zoo eventually working her way up to head-keeper of gorillas. While simultaneously working as a keeper, she became increasingly involved in building the zoo’s support of in situ conservation culminating in becoming the first Field Conservation Coordinator at Columbus. In 1995, she co-founded the first ZACC (Zoos and Aquariums: Committing to Conservation) conference. Since then she has advised and helped organize the last twenty-five years of ZACC conferences. She is currently the chair of the ZACC Steering Committee.

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.
The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
