Calling all fossil hunters and dinosaur lovers. Ancient teeth and bones of marine animals await you at the Hastings Branch Library. First we'll make dinosaur cookies and put them in the oven. Then we'll sift for natural treasures and match them to fossil charts. Finally, it will be time to frost the cookies while watching a dinosaur "creature feature." To top it off, you'll get to take your fossils home with you.
