    Have you ever wondered what bees are up to inside their hives? Come to the Library and check out the portable, visible hive brought to us by Todd Wilfer. Todd will present a program telling us about bees, their activities and their importance in our world. If we are lucky, we'll see the queen in the section of hive that comes to the library. Todd will field any questions we may have. Unless it is raining, we plan to set up our program in the grassy area to the north of the building so the bees will be shaded and cool. The Plexiglas walls will allow us to observe activities without disturbing the bees. This event is open to ALL INTERESTED PERSONS. Kids 10 and under should bring an adult with them.
