Several members of the Mass Butterfly Club and the Forbush Bird Club recently set-up a large butterflies and birds display at the Worcester Public Library. Each club had five large display cases for public viewing at the 3 Salem Square location during the entire month of June.

The Mass Butterfly Club display team used the theme, “Take Wings,” to highlight: benefits of club membership, interesting facts about butterfly biology, locations of fieldtrips, fun and interesting books, photographs of happy members, and framed photographs of selected Mass butterflies.

Dolores Price writes: "Many thanks go to MBC members who generously let us borrow photos, books, posters, calendars, empty chrysalides, and other items that inspired the ideas for this display. I especially wish to acknowledge the individuals who planned and carried out this project with me: Elise Barry, Wendy Miller, and most notably Beth Herr, whose creative talents brought our ideas to fruition."
