March on into Perry Library

Houston County Public Library System kicks off our third annual Dino Derby on March 1st!


The Dino Derby is an annual competition between the three Houston County Libraries: Centerville, Perry & Warner Robins. Our Dinos race in true Kentucky Derby fashion. You can cheer on Perry’s Dino by feeding it! The Dinos are stationed at the circulation desk. Their weekly performance is updated on a board on display throughout the month in the library.

 Perry Library has the pride of being the 2 time derby champions. This makes us a target!!! The other two libraries are extra motivated to end our streak. We hope to hold them at bay with extra fun!

Check out one of these fun dino inspired events:
