Go ahead, bug out!

Insects will be the thing for those with a creative bent

The New Haven Public Library is going buggy this summer, and all ages are invited to enjoy will activities, projects and special events with a bug theme.
Adults are invited to get crafty by creating wild and wonderful papier mache bugs at a special 2-part June Bugs class to be held at The Creative Arts Workshop, 80 Audubon St., organizers said. On two Sunday afternoons, June 1 and 8, from 1-4 p.m., instructor Eva Scopino will lead participants through the creation of much larger than lifesize papier mache bugs. When completed, the bugs will head down to hang around the lobby of the downtown library all summer. There is a $25 all-inclusive fee for this special June Bug class, with very limited space, organizer said. Pre-register by May 23 online at or call 946-8835.

June Bugs is a special collaboration between The Creative Arts Workshop and The New Haven Public Library to encourage summer reading for all ages.
