On Saturday, June 28, children who enjoy science were in for a real treat when an educator from Carnegie Museum of Natural History brought real dinosaur bones to Monessen Public Library. She showed the fossils and educated the children about them.

Mad Scientist
Corinne Baccanti, Outreach Educator for the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, holds up the skull of a camarasaurus dinosaur, one of the oldest discovered.

Prior to her arrival, at 11 a.m., the children took part in a summer reading signup with new Children's Librarian Allysa Gigliotti. Then, they engaged in crafts of dinosaur bones.

Finally, at 1 p.m., Corinne Baccanti from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History arrived. There was a mold of T-rex skull, which was a quarter-size replica, a T-rex tooth the size of a banana, a tail plate, and many other dinosaur pieces.

Kids of all ages were interested and asked questions. Baccanti told the children to come out and visit her at the museum. When she asked, "Did you all have a cool time and learn a lot?" They said, "Yes!"
