Dinosaurs & Dragons At Gilmanton Corner Library In July!
This summer explore the amazing world of the dazzling dinosaurs who
ruled the earth 250 million years ago. Learn about their world and
find out why they became extinct. The Corner Library has a selection
of new books and DVDs, a drawing for dinosaur prizes and free
dinosaur sticker booklets and gliders.
What is it about dragons - the most frightening of legendary
creatures - that make them the most popular? Scaly, toothy, not to
mention fire-breathing beings that slither about on snake-like
bellies or pace on powerful legs. Many launch themselves on leathery
wings, casting shadows that scare the very toenails off of quaking
people! Learn their history, types and where they might be found...
Satisfy your dragon curiosity with books, DVDs and crafts at the
Gilmanton Corner Library.
