Evelyn Stafford, 3 and gets a boost from mom Lena Dianda as she pets Serena, a nine-year-old alpaca from Alpacas from Eighth and Mud (which is located, appropriately, at Eighth Road and Mud Street in Stoney Creek). Serena was making her third visit to the Terryberry Branch of the Hamilton Public Library Tuesday afternoon. Staff brought in Serena along with owner Sharon Trent-Docherty to give patrons the chance to see an alpaca up close. Over 150 people stopped by the library parking lot to see Serena. Serena is a therapy animal so she was quite comfortable with all the attention as people posed for photos and pet her neck. Photo by Scott Gardner, The Hamilton Spectator
