An Exhibit from the

Did you like the dinosaurs you saw in the movie Jurassic World? Visit the Library to

see the two-story-tall giant Jobaria—you will have to go to the 1st and 2nd floor

to see all of him. You will find a flying pterosaur with a 16-foot wingspan and a

fierce Suchomimus, who looked like a crocodile with enormous claws. The exhibit

will feature:

• Fossils

• Real dinosaur bones you can touch

• Expedition images

The bones of the Dinosaur Giants were discovered in Africa by world-famous

University of Chicago paleontologist Dr. Paul Sereno. Para una descripción en

by Jobaria’s 33-foot-tall skeleton or walk in to the fossil-filled cave.

The library has welcomed visitors from all over Illinois and 4 different

states. We are thankful to the many people who have volunteered to

be docents, as there have been nearly 500 people who have already

taken tours during the exhibit’s first month.

The library is able to bring these world-class exhibits to this

community due to supporters. We thank the Gail Borden Public

Library Foundation, Elgin State Bank, EFS Foundation, SEIGLE Family

Foundation, Palmer Foundation and KCT Credit Union for making

Dinosaur Giants a reality. We also thank all the people who make
