Check Out Our Butterfly House

As part of this year's Summer Reading celebration, "Catch the Reading Bug," we have rented this beautiful butterfly house from Smoke Ridge Butterflies.

This picture shows one of the two Baltimore Checkerspot larvae; the house also holds tiny Eastern Black Swallowtail larvae and Painted Lady eggs.

We hope you stop by often to check the progress of our new boarders.

Soldiers Honored

Some of you may have wondered why our flag was flying at half-staff today. Governor Paterson ordered the flags lowered in honor of the three Fort Drum soldiers who were killed in Iraq this week. Army Sgt. Shane P. Duffy of Tauton, Massachusetts, Army Specialist Jonathan D. Emard of Mesquite, Texas, and Army Sgt. Cody R. Legg of Escondido, California, were members of the 1st Battalion, 878th Infantry Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 10th Mountain Division.

“On behalf of the citizens of New York, I extend our heartfelt sympathies to the families of Sergeants Legg and Duffy and Specialist Emard,” said Governor Paterson.

Thank you to all of our great Friends and volunteers who put together our "Just Paperbacks" sale, and to Shirley P. for organizing everything. (Shirley, you've done it again!)

The final total was $277 - a phenomenal amount when you think about taking it in a quarter at a time. As I often say, "We love our Friends!"
