Butterflies are beautiful, delicate and very, very HUNGRY little beasties!  You should do your very best to cater them a lovely meal -- somewhere nice... like the alley behind your house!  Or maybe that yucky patch of dirt on the corner of Somewhere and There.  Or maybe over yonder in that big empty field behind Great Wall of Ugly -- just toss a SeeD Bomb full of LoVe and watch the MAGIC happen!* 

Join us at Arvada Library today to let your Inner Gardening Guerilla out -- Make SEED BOMBS and spread the BEAUTY!

Tuesday, May 28th @ 4:30pm.

*MAGIC not instantaneous.  They're seeds.  They take time. But you know what I mean...  EVENTUALLY it will be MAGICAL. Or at least pretty.

The Lakwood Library held an Altered Book Contest that ended June 3. Entries are on display at the library and a special ceremony will be held on June 5, when three winners will be announced. There will be a teen competition for ages 12-17 and an adult competition for those who are 18 and older.
