Marshfield Public Library Gets Overrun by Dinosaurs

New Library Exhibit Features Dinosaur Displays and Fun Activities for September.

As the school year starts again, the Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library finds itself overrun by dinosaurs.

For the entire month of September, an extensive dinosaur collection by William B. Mielke will be on display on the first floor. Come check out replicas of a T-Rex, Stegasaurus, Triceretops, Pterodactyl and Velociraptor hiding around the library.

“The Dinosaur exhibit is a great way to learn more about dinosaurs by seeing replicas, touching hands-on exhibits, and taking part in crafts and activities all about dinosaurs,” said Sara Bartkowiak, Library Specialist. “Follow the dinosaur footprints around the library and visit all of our dinosaur friends.”

There are also cool items like real dinosaur eggs, an iron pot in coal dating 295 million years, an African T-Rex tooth, and a fossil skull model.

“Check out all the books and movies the library has to take home with you on our various dinosaur displays,” said Bartkowiak. “This is a free, family-friendly exhibit that is available for self-guided exploration during regular library hours during the entire month of September.”
There will be coloring sheets all month, crafts at the Children’s Craft Table, and displays for dinosaur books and DVDs. Check out the following dinosaur-related events at the library:

Tues. Sept. 12: Dinosaur crafts from 6:30-7:30
Tues. Sept. 19: Dinosaur LEGO 6:30-7:30 (All Legos provided)
