Libraries and bees

I first saw bee hives at Salt Lake City where they were/are on the roof top of the library, but visible inside.

I have also seen them at Anythink Perl Mack as part of the community garden,

and Robbins Library, on a closed balcony.

They also had a display downstairs, about the bees, and the partnership with the local bee keepers.

Cornell Library has digitised some important work about bees.

There are probably many more libraries with bees.  I really like this development, as it has an educative and environmental approach.  It would be lovely to see more libraries with bees.
