DAVENPORT, IOWA (October 31, 2022) — Beginning November 1 through November 5, the Library welcomes dinosaur friends to spend some time with Library Staff.

It’s DINOVEMBER and dinosaurs are taking over the all Davenport Public Library locations! Your Dino toys and stuffies will spend a couple of weeks hanging out with Library staff as we process books, answer phones, lead story-times, and more! Your dino will even write you a postcard letting you know about all the fun stuff they are doing (and how many books they have devoured…). Drop off your Dino at a Davenport Library between November 1 through November 5 and expect to spend a few minutes filling out paperwork so we can keep your dino safe and secure during their time with us. Dinos will then be available for pickup from your chosen library location between November 30 through December 3. Keep watch on our social media for all the dino-mite fun!
