Library Connection: Dinosaurs seeking host families in valley

With the help of public libraries, dinosaurs (the pretend, plastic kind) are on tour across the nation. They started their trip in Wisconsin where they braved wintery cold and snow before taking shelter in the Columbus Public Library. Their next stop was Kentucky where they hung with a giant paper mache dinosaur in a public library, explored Mammoth Caves, and searched for cardinals. Then off to sunny South Carolina and Florida, the perfect places to take in the warm, sunny beaches and meet the alligators. Soon they will be on their way to us in the Mount Washington Valley.

They are looking for host families to bring them on local mountain adventures. If you are interested in taking some dinosaurs to the ski slopes, out to dinner at a Valley Original restaurant, ice climbing, enjoying a local spa or any of your other favorite adventures, let Tara or Tessa know and they will set it up for you. Of course, pictures of the adventures would be very appreciated.
