Butterfly Book Nook

The Butterfly Book Nook was founded in memory of Cynthia Graham Hurd who loved to garden and read outdoors. Established in 2017, the design and installation was a
collaboration with First African Evangelical Church, Dart Library, Enough Pie, landscape architects Holly & J. R. Kramer, and botanist Celie Dailey.
