Newark Library will be hosting a program all about starting your own butterfly garden. Each participant will learn about the types of plants butterflies like here in California and will get to take home a starter plant of their own. Plus, for all the families attending the event, we will also have a butterfly craft after the presentation. No registration necessary. Program will be held on Saturday, May 22nd from 11 am – 12:30 pm.
