Welcome to the Dinosaur Stomp here at the Saint Paul Public Library! Youth Services is launching theme weeks for summer storytimes starting this week. These themes will pop up twice a month through the end of August, and they're kicking off the themes with a fan favorite--dinosaurs! Tiana and Bri will be reading their favorite dino books and singing their favorite dino songs on Tuesday (7/7) and Thursday (7/9) during their storytimes. (In case you're wondering, they also have favorite dinosaurs--Tiana is partial to the Parasaurolophus and Bri brakes for the Brontosaurus!)
Storytime books will include:

Summer Spark encourages kids to have fun, stay active, and keep learning all summer long, and runs July 1 to August 31. Join in the fun by attending free virtual programs at your library and earning prizes by completing reading and activity challenges! Kids and teens can earn book prizes, stickers, and journals. Log your reading with Beanstack online or pick up a paper reading log during contactless pick-up or computer access hours from Arlington, George Latimer, Hamline, Hayden, Highland, Merriam, Rice, Riverview, Rondo, Sunray, or the Bookmobile.
