A Library for the Birds

Earlier this month a library for the birds opened in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

The brainchild of Rebecca Flowers and Kevin Cwalina, The Belmont Public Library for the Birds opened May 2nd with a grand opening “complete with registering birds for library cards.”

Their slogan is ‘Belmont Public Library for the birds: feeding the bird brains of Virginia,’” and from the looks of it it has been a busy place.
