The Ontario City Library invites readers to participate in Ontario Reads Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton starting August 13, 2018 through October 13, 2018.  Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the Ovitt Family Community Library and Colony High Branch Library.  The Library encourages all readers to read and discuss Michael Crichton’s book with their family, friends and neighbors.  Both Library locations will provide games and activities for all ages based on the novel.

On Thursday, October 11, 2018 at 6:30 PM, there will be a special presentation at the Ovitt Family Community Library.  Paleontologist Gabriel-Philip Santos from the Raymond M.
