Marion library program to focus on fossils

Marion City Library will have a program about “Oceans in Kansas” at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Michael Everhart of the Kansas Humanities Council will talk about how Kansas has been the source of many important fossils. From giant marine reptiles to flying reptiles and birds with teeth, many important discoveries of now-extinct species came from rocks in western Kansas.

Everhart’s presentation will take the audience back to a time when the state was covered by an ocean and ruled by giant marine reptiles larger than most dinosaurs. The public is encouraged to bring any fossils they may have for Everhart to look at and describe. For more information, call Marion City Library at (620) 382-2442.
