Library all a flutter

THE Wonthaggi Library is covered in butterflies of all different shapes and sizes at the moment, as part of a community art project.

The display was launched to the public on Saturday with face painting, storytelling and a drumming performance.

The idea of Wonthaggi community VCAL teacher Tom Murray-White, the project to cover the library in butterflies was embraced by the town.

“I thought it was a cool idea, so working with the library, we put out an open invitation to the whole community to get involved, particularly primary school aged children,” he said.

“The library did a lot of work engaging the local community and the schools to bring the project together.”

Mr Murray-White also led a musical performance, which portrayed the life of a butterfly using percussion instruments and a violin.

“We had six sections all blended together to take the audience through the life cycle of a butterfly,” he said.

All the colours: Celeste and Tomieka Petracca from Inverloch were enthralled by the hundreds of colourful butterflies on the windows of the Wonthaggi Library on Saturday.
