Friends of the Franklin Library

From the Friends… Allow your mind to wander and your heart flutter at The Butterfly Place. The Friends of the Franklin Library recently donated 200 passes to The Butterfly Place, an indoor botanical garden filled with hundreds of freely flying butterflies - both native New England butterflies as well as tropical species from around the world. Go for the butterflies, but don't stop there, visit the koi fish, see the quail birds and enjoy the other exhibits.  After you've seen it all, take a seat on the "Show and Tell" bench where volunteers are ready to answer any of your questions. Located in Westford, MA, The Butterfly Place is open from 10:00am – 4:00pm daily (except Easter Sunday and July 4th) now through October 10th. Ready to plan your trip? If you are a Franklin resident, you can use your Library Card to request up to 4 passes which will allow your group of up to 4 to visit this gem of a museum free of charge. The Friends hope that you enjoy your visit to The Butterfly Place!

The Friends of the Franklin Library is an all-volunteer, nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting and promoting The Franklin Public Library's collections and programs. Want to learn more or get involved? Send us an email at .
