Just three more days until school is out. And those last three days are only half days. Soon, your children will be singing the "It's Summer and I Don't Have Anything To Do Blues."

Here's at least one thing. The kids can play scientist June 30 when the Maryland Science Center brings its dinosaur show to the Crofton Library. Shows are at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Using a variety of props, the Science Center staff will help children understand how scientists piece together information about dinosaurs and their habits by studying ancient rocks, tracks and bones. Registration is not required for the free, hourlong program, but seating is limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis.
