What do butterflies, knitting, and explosions have in common? Your library.
In honor of National Library Week, we celebrated how “Libraries Transform!” April 8–15 with 39 events, live music, free rentals, giveaways, and more. Thank you to all the pop-up performers and presenters for partnering with us to make this week a special one for our community. Thank you to Adriane Binky Donley for creating the magical installation in the library lobby with 1,700 hand-painted butterflies. Thank you to Caldecott Honor illustrator and author Peter McCarty for inspiring 450 schoolchildren at Barkstall and Westview elementary schools. Thank you to the Library Friends for the support that makes events like this possible. And thank you to this great community for your library love!
