Program Description

Event Details

Drop by our community room as Jess and Ronnie lead a different hands-on activity or welcome a new guest speaker each month! All crafting materials are provided by the library. Intended for grades 6 and up.

We're excited to once again welcome local apiarist Jim Coss, founder of The Honey and Bee Connection right here in Rowan County! Come learn about the basics of beekeeping, from getting started to queenspotting, hive construction, terminology, and more. Bees are some of the most important members of our community, so if you're thinking of getting your own—whether it's to harvest your own honey or just to support the environment—drop by our community room and meet Jim!



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact us ahead of the program or event date.
