Bugs in the Library! Bugs in the Gardens!

It is a bug invasion!

You can always find good bug books at the San Antonio Public Library. For insects, just look in Juvenile 595.7. And spiders are close by in Juvenile 595.44.

But if you want some super-sized bugs to look at, try the San Antonio Botanical Garden. The Garden's "Big Bugs" exhibit opens on Saturday, September 5 and continues through December 6. These bugs are REALLY big -- some stand as tall as 25 feet and others have a wingspan of 17 feet. Of course, they aren't real bugs -- they are creatures from the imagination of artist David Rogers.

And, don't forget to take your library card with you to the Gardens. Show your card when you purchase your ticket for $1.00 off admission.
