Dinosaurs Will Roar Again at Library as NEW People's University Launches on July 21 !

It's the summer of dinosaurs, and the Ohio County Public Library in Wheeling invites patrons to learn all about the amazing prehistoric creatures in an eight-week series. 

The new dinosaur series will feature paleontolgists and students of plaeontology from Pittsburgh's venerable Carnegie Museum of Natural History discussing topics ranging from defining what dinosaurs actually were to how they are related to modern birds and reptiles, to  how and why they became extinct. The series will conclude with a behind-the-scenes field trip guided by the museum's principal dinosaur researcher himself, Dr. Matthew Lamanna.
