What do you get when you mix bones, butterflies, dragons, dinosaurs, and even a guitar together? Fun of course!

Through a generous contribution from the Directions Credit Union ® (formerly the Toledo Area Community Credit Union), the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library will be the site of some exciting free summertime programs for kids of all ages.

Here’s what’s in store:
*Dragons and Dinosaurs, Bones of Contention – Meet storyteller Indiana Bones (aka Mike McCartney) as he explores the perplexing complexities of the dragon/dinosaur world with the help of dinosaur fossils and Darwin the Dragon.
