INTERACTIVE MEASUREMENTS: How many chickens do you weigh? How tall are you in apples or inches or pennies? Can you use your foot as a ruler? The answers to these and other questions can be explored at “Measurement Rules,” an interactive exhibit at the Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention on display from Sept. 19 to Jan. 2, 2022. It might be common to measure using standard tools such as measuring tapes and vessels, but the “Measurement” exhibit will explore some nonstandard ones such as balancing scales, odometers, calipers, 3-D imaging and counting “Mississippis.” You can explore concepts of length, time, volume and weight in a variety of ways, including length with a height wall, treadmill odometer, ball gauges, giant tape measure and foot ruler time with “five Mississippi” and a ball stopwatch; volume with “See your volume” and a bead table; and weight with chicken and balance scales. The Cade Museum’s hours of operation are noon to 5 p.m. Thursdays and Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. It is located at 811 S. Main St. Visit CadeMuseum.org for more information.

BABY DINOS!: Florida Museum of Natural History visitors can step back in time to the age of dinosaurs in the new “Tiny Titans: Dinosaur Eggs and Babies” exhibit, open from Sept. 25 to Jan. 9, 2022. “Tiny Titans” uses authentic specimens, lifelike models and realistic artwork to transform the area into a “Jurassic Park” day care and showcase the rarely seen world of dinosaur parenting. This interactive exhibition features more than 150 eggs as well as real dinosaur bones, reconstructed nests, hands-on exploration stations and animated video presentations. A “petting zoo” displays five species of juvenile dinosaurs, and creative costumes allow visitors to dress up and take pictures with a reconstructed nest. Stunning photographs and illustrations by renowned paleoartists Luis Rey and Mark Hallett bring this era to life while revealing the diversity and scale of the dinosaurs. Authentic models of embryos and hatchlings expose a rarely seen side to these ancient creatures. The exhibit has information on a variety of dinosaur groups spanning their nearly 200 million-year history, from ceratops and sauropods to ornithopods and theropods, as well as their parenting and nesting behavior. Also on display is the full story of “Baby Louie,” the first articulated theropod hatchling ever found, complete with a lifelike representation. Admission to “Tiny Titans” is $8 for adults; $7 for Florida residents, seniors and non-University of Florida college students; $5.50 for ages 3 to 17; and free to museum members and UF students with a valid Gator 1 Card. Complete admission pricing is available online at floridamuseum.ufl.edu/visit/plan.

NATIONAL LIBRARY CARD SIGN-UP MONTH: Alachua County residents can add a library card — and possibly a grocery gift card — to their wallets in September during National Library Card Sign-Up Month. All month, new cardholders can enter to win a $20 Publix gift card courtesy of the Rotary Club of Gainesville by signing up for an Alachua County Library District card at one of the district’s 12 library locations and taking a photo with their mega card, sharing it on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter, and tagging @alachualibrary. Ten winners will be announced in October. Keep an eye on the Library District’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter all month for appearances by special library champions — you might spot a few famous Gators. A library card gives access to nearly 815,000 items, including more than 110,000 digital books, audiobooks and magazines. Library cardholders can log into eSource databases anywhere, check out toys and borrow a mobile hotspot. Current library users also can snap photos with the mega card or download ready-to-post social media graphics, tag @alachualibrary and share during September to spread the word. Florida residents age 18 and older can register for a library card at any library location with photo identification and proof of residency. To sign up for a card, bring one of the following forms of identification: any current photo ID with Florida address, voter registration card, rent or utility receipt, personal checkbook with imprinted name and address, property tax notice, name and address on mail with canceled postage (including forwarded mail) or a telephone listing in a current telephone directory. To get a library card for a minor (ages 4-17), the parent or legal guardian must have their own photo ID plus a form of ID for the child, such as a school report card, school immunization record, health insurance card, Social Security card, birth certificate or passport. Visit aclib.us/librarycardsignup for more details.
