The Ferdinand Branch Library hosted a butterfly painting activity where participants used sponges and paint to decorate cardboard butterflies Monday afternoon. Peyton Boeglin of Huntingburg, 5, mixed watercolors together while painting her butterfly. “I think I’m going to be an artist when I grow up,” Peyton said. Peyton’s grandmother, Darlene Boeglin of Ferdinand, brought Peyton and her two brothers — Dakota, 6, and Parker, 2, — to the library after school.
