A week of dinosaur fun at Fendalton Library

We'll be running a week of fun dinosaur activities at Fendalton Library Monday 19 July to Friday 23 July. It will include dinosaur themed crafts, displays, scavenger hunt and a storytime on Friday 23 July.

Dinosaurs first appeared during the Triassic period around 240 million years ago. They are a varied group of diverse animals reaching enormous sizes. Although these cool creatures aren’t around anymore it’s always exciting to learn about the largest animals to ever roam earth.

Why not join us at Fendalton Library to learn all about these fascinating creatures!

Dinosaur Events

Join us for dinosaur-themed craft, displays, scavenger hunt and storytime. The crafts, displays, and scavenger hunt run during the week and we’ll end our week-long dinosaur dynasty with a storytelling event on Friday afternoon, 23 July. Find out more about our dinosaur events:
