Monarchs at library



SOUTHWEST HARBOR — An exhibit featuring monarch butterflies will be in the display case at the Southwest Harbor Public Library during the month of September.

This display is an eclectic collection of items honoring one person’s years of passion for monarch butterflies. For decades, Shirley Schmitke raised and released monarch butterflies, both in Florida and in Maine, eagerly sharing her passion and knowledge of these fascinating creatures.

The exhibit is in her memory.
