National Honey Month

Celebrate National Honey Month!

September is National Honey Month, and to celebrate the Greater Grand Lake Beekeeper Association (GGLBA) has put in an excellent display about beekeeping.

Visit the library to check out the beehive and the Honey/Bee Quilt pieced by 11 year old, Gentry Clark. Posters about GGLBA hive locations, honeybees, and a Beekeeper's year will give you lots of information about the topic.
