There is a lot going on at the Kurth Memorial Library this summer. If you are on the lookout for free activities for you and the kids, they have plenty to offer.

Thursday, June 15th and Friday, June 16th the Dinosaur George Traveling Museum is coming to the library located at 706 South Raguet in Lufkin from 10 AM to 6:30 PM both days.

They will have many dinosaur bones to inspire your kids and give physical form to our planet's prehistoric past. It's a great way to continue their education during the summertime, and they won't even know they are learning.

What Is The Dinosaur George Traveling Museum? 

The Dinosaur George Museum & Gift Shop in San Antonio, Texas is located inside the Traders Village. They put together this traveling museum in conjunction with their local PBS TV station KLRN.

Now they travel all over bringing many dinosaur skulls and other large fossils to schools all over Texas. Now they are coming to our Lufkin library and turning it into a paleontology center.

This is one of the largest traveling exhibits in the country. They will even bring the gift shop with them, so bring your wallet. Children under 13 must not be left in the library without adult supervision.
