Did you know that there are around 25,000 different types of bee species? Did you know that these furry stingers are responsible for pollinating about one-sixth of the flowering plant species worldwide and approximately 400 different agricultural types of plant? Remarkable!

Come and learn all about the different bees in the valley and what they do for us. This program will have folks buzzing about these fascinating, hard-working creatures.

Then plan to stick around after and enjoy some finger foods provided by the Friends of the Library. Come taste things you can make using honey!
