Dinosaurs Invade Akron Library!
Dinosaurs have invaded the Akron Public Library in an attempt to escape the ice outside!  “This is fabulous,” said Director Jeannie Frerichs, “They’ve arrived just in time!”  Frerichs was referring to the latest archaeological undertaking in the children’s section of the library.  Children’s librarian Mary Campbell has been digging out old dinosaur books.  “Some of these books are like fossils,” she said.  “They have definitely seen better days!”  The dinosaur section is so well loved by boys and girls alike that all the non-fiction books are worn out.  Anyone who makes a donation toward new dinosaur books gets to take home a dinosaur because as everyone knows, “Dinosaurs go with everything!”  There is a minimum donation required based on the size of the dinosaur.
