HARRISBURG, Pa. — Dinosaurs roamed the planet 65 million years ago. During “On Your Mark… Get Set… READ!” 2016 Summer Reading Club, dinosaurs can be discovered at The Library. Local author Mike Scrignoli will test dinosaur-loving kids’ knowledge during the “Dinorific Scientific Name Game Show.” Quirky questions and prizes abound in this dino trivia challenge, perfect for children and their parents.


Children’s author “Mr. Mike” Scrignoli will test the knowledge of participants in this interactive event, which will likely fuel dinosaur discussion for days to come. With over 1,400 different dinosaurs identified by scientists, there will be plenty to learn for even the most avid Jr. Paleontologist.
