Dinosaur Giants in Elgin
May 24, 2017
May 15 - September 15, 2017
Dinosaur Giants are Back is the inspiring—and updated—story of the discovery of Africa’s Cretaceous-age dinosaurs by a Chicago paleontologist and his students. Set inside the beautiful spaces of the Gail Borden Library, the towering skeletons, real fossils, and expedition images and video will create a most attractive learning environment.
Dinosaur Giants are Back showcases groundbreaking discoveries that transport library visitors to a prehistoric world more than 100 million years old. It is based on its very popular forerunner in 2005, an exhibit fondly remembered by a generation of families from Elgin and well beyond.
The bizarre long-necked “Mesozoic cow” (Nigersaurus) is a centerpiece of the fully revamped and updated displays, on exhibit for the first time in the US.
