BUTTERFLY BOOK NOOK: Pollinator & Storytime Garden
Groundbreaking October 1st – Opening Spring 2018
HELP US TRANSFORM THIS EMPTY LOT INTO A BEAUTIFUL PLACE!
The goal of the Butterfly Book Nook is to enrich the community by building an interactive, beautiful place to share stories, dance, read, sing, check out a book, and so much more.
Butterfly Book Nook is coming to North Central, Spring 2018! The garden will be a beautiful, vital space for education and recreation for First African Day School and John L. Dart Library, as well as the surrounding community. Utilized as a creative space to learn about plants, pollinators such as bees, birds, and butterflies, encourage inquiry, and engage in story and book sharing, the Butterfly Book Nook needs your help to blossom.
The seed for the Butterfly Book Nook will grow from the storied work of librarian Cynthia Graham Hurd, a lifelong resident of the North Central community whose died in the Mother Emanuel 9 tragedy, who lived, educated, and dreamed in this neighborhood.
