"Whirligigs" on Exhibit at the Barbara Bush Branch Library

Whirligig

W. Roland MCClellan has provided us with a wonderful, fun exhibit for our glasscase in the lobby. After retirement, Roland was motivated to explore his creativity. He found that whirligigs offered almost unlimited design and mechanical challenges. The whirligigs in this exhibit are only a few examples of what can be done with this interesting media.
