Thursday, August 3 is “Honey Bee Day” at Hagaman Library!

Bring the kids to the library on Thursday, August 3 at 2:00 p.m. for a special program called “Honey Bees and Me.” Learn about the gentle honey bee. Learn the casts of the honey bee colony, the anatomy of the honey bee,  how bees communicate inside the hive and why honey bees are so important to us.

A presentation called “The Sweet History of Honey,” will be presented at the library for adults at 6:30 p.m. on the same day.

The presentation will cover why we love honey so much,  what makes honey so dark or light?  How many varieties of honey are there?  Why does honey crystallize?  Why do different kinds of honeys taste different?   Does honey need to be pasteurized?

How many famous people do you know that are Beekeepers?  Beekeeping information and resources for beekeepers available! Meet “The Bee Lady,” Catherine Wolko of the Humble Bee Honey Company of Watertown, CT. Free American Bee Journals and Bee Culture magazines will be available for all attendees. There will also be free raffles and door prizes following the presentation. Please visit the library or call 203-468-3890 to register for either or both of these fun events!
