“Handle a book as a bee does a flower, extract its sweetness but do not damage it.” 
 John Muir

Come to club meetings to talk and hear about bees. Leave club meetings inspired to try something new with your bees. Use club resources to better understand the ways of the bees. Club members may check out books and DVDs at the monthly meetings for one month. Browse the collection and sign out a book – book title, your name & contact (phone or email) and the date. Please return all items at the next monthly meeting so that everyone has an opportunity to take advantage of this great resource.  If nobody else would like to check the selected item out, it may be checked out again for another month.
