In our 2013 survey, hundreds of people said they wished our library was open on Saturdays during the dog days of summer. We listened, and the Main Library is open 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays this July and August. We’re counting on you to keep us busy on Saturdays this summer. Please spread the word to your family and friends.

Apis mellifera (the honey bee) appeared on Earth 60 million years before man and is as indispensable to the economy as it is to man’s survival. Today, local bees are disappearing, and this epidemic is spreading from beehive to beehive – all over the planet. Join us to view Markus Imhoof’s award-winning film More Than Honey and meet local beekeeper Ralph Harrison. We will discuss the film and taste some of Ralph’s locally produced honey. Jars of honey will be available for sale. A Read ‘Em and Eat event. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.
