Join in on a fossil dig, identify tracks on the Dinosaur Trail and
create some Dino Slime to take home! There will be plenty of
dinosaur-themed crafts and a special appearance by the library’s
very own pet dinosaur, Theresa Rex!

• 11:30 a.m.; 1 p.m. – The Heard Science Museum (limited to 100 people) *
