This Saturday September 16 from 9am-5pm, Special Collections and NCSU Libraries staff will be at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences for BugFest 2017, with this year's theme: dragonflies!  Stop by the NCSU Libraries "Ask Us" station on the 3rd floor (near the T-Rex fossil) for origami, stamps, coloring sheets from our digitized collection of E.A. Seguy prints, and more activities for the kids.

Our participation in BugFest evolved as a result of the Special Collections Research Center's development of collections in entomology, including the Zeno P. Metcalf Research Collection, and the event, "Bug-O-Rama," in the early 2000s that developed into the BugFest we know and love today. 

Check out more of our bug-related collections in our digitized collections, learn more on our website, and contact us for more information about our rare book and archival collections in entomology.
