A former children’s librarian who can’t stop talking about libraries…that’s me! I am starting a new weekly feature called “Library Life” and it will bring you the weekend’s library events happening around the area, from Louisville to Prospect to New Albany and places in between. Let’s get started with this weekend’s featured library happenings, brought to you by a Louisville Free Public Library insider.
Friday, June 27, 2 p.m.
The Main Library in downtown Louisville is hosting a “Meet a T-Rex” at a special dinosaur storytime. If I were in town, my toddler and I would be there. One of the dinosaurs from the show Dinosaur Zoo Live will be at the library for a meet-n-greet (do dinosaurs do meet-n-greets or is it more like roar-n-scare?).
The Main Library is located at 301 York Street. Call 502-574-1620 for more information.
