Creepy Crawlers At The Lloyd Library: An Exhibition And Talk On All Things Insects


The Lloyd Library is crawling with creepy critters this summer for its latest exhibit Incredible Insects: 400 Years of Entomology. The exhibition features illustrated works dating from 1634 to the early 20th century that depict the habitat, anatomy and metamorphosis of insects.

This week the library is bugging out with a special guest lecture. "Friend or Foe: Bugs in Your Sustainable Garden" explores the value of insects in our gardens and how to sustainably strike the balance between promoting the health of our gardens and the battle with insects in an ecologically sustainable way. The virtual conversation features local gardeners and environmental experts on July 15 from 7-8 p.m.

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss "Friend or Foe: Bugs in Your Sustainable Garden" and Incredible Insects: 400 Years of Entomology are Lloyd Library Executive Director Patricia Van Skaik; Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden Manager of Botanical Garden Outreach Scott Beuerlein; Brick Gardens Founder Dominique Peebles; and Mercantile Library Librarian Cedric Rose.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
