Program description: A large, library grade, decorative table/desk set solarium will be set up in a public location within the library. It will contain host plants, butterfly eggs, and patrons will be encouraged to return to the library regularly ro view the progress of caterpillars, chrysalis hatching, and butterflies within the solarium. This can be replenished as often as desired throughout the season, with the understanding that it takes 5-7 weeks for the life cycle to be complete. The library may choose to keep the solarium for future use or return it at the end of the season for a rebate.
