It was another fun afternoon Thursday at the Stephenville Public Library when it hosted its third Summer Reading Program with Dinosaur Valley State Park ranger interpreter, Shawn Garver.

“Basically this is to help them see what’s around them in nature,” Garver said. “This helps the kids be able to explore their local areas and state parks. We have a lot of things to do out there every weekend.”

Garver taught kids about the various dinosaur species and tracks found in Dinosaur Valley along with letting the kids dig up their own fossils.

“This program is always a favorite with the kids because of well, dinosaurs, and with Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opening in theaters this weekend,” said library children’s program coordinator Cathy Paulino. “Ranger Garver’s timely visit was especially fun.”

The next Summer reading event will kick off at 2 p.m. Thursday, July 5, at the library with the Tarleton State University horticulture department. Reservations are not required for the event.
