official poster for National Fossil Day 2021

National Fossil Day is an annual celebration that highlights the scientific and educational value of paleontology and the importance of preserving fossils for future generations.  2021 marks just the 12th year of this holiday, which makes it relatively new.  Especially compared to the age of fossils!  The National Park Service has a great website you can explore.  And, of course, Hoover Public Library has plenty of books to help you discover the wonder of fossils.  Here are some of the latest titles.
