The dinosaurs have returned to the W.T. Bland Public Library! Thanks to Mount Dora-based Planet Earth Sculpture, we now have over 30 museum-grade replicas of dinosaurs in our lobby for all to see. These models reflect the newest science in that many dinosaurs had fur and feathers. The precise features of these reproductions are vetted by academics in the field and museum curators. The dinosaur exhibit will run through February 2022 and is sponsored by the Friends of the Library Mount Dora. Related educational materials are located in the lobby and near our resident Velociraptor, near the Circulation Desk. ... See MoreSee Less
