Butterflies at the Library

butterfly wallbutterflyCelebrate citizenship month and create your own origami butterfly and leave the library a special message.  At the table near the children's area is a basket of paper and instructions, if you get stuck come and ask for help at the desk.  Once you are finished add it to our growing collection of butterflies.  We come from all over the world.  We embrace transformation, we make our way in faith, and we emerge from our transitions as brilliantly as the butterfly.  We also have caterpillars ready to emerge as painted lady butterflies. Come soon, we will be letting them go next week.
