    Tuesday August 22nd, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Todd Wilfer, beekeeper and NPMS science teacher, will present Here's the Buzz--Take a closer look at Bees. 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 just outside the side entrance to the upper Ministry location 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.

    From 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., we will have a Celebrate Reading! Family potluck supper and Chinese auction. Come to the library with a dish to pass. We’ll supply a drink, plates, utensils, napkins, cake and ice cream. We ask you to bring a white elephant “prize” and we will have drawings for these prizes. Everyone will get slips of paper to use in "bidding" on the various items [i.e., putting them into a paper cup in front of the item you want to win].We will draw also for prizes for the reading programs. Bring chairs if you can. We hope to have this event outdoors under the front entry's canopy.
