Join Julie Kelley, co-owner of Tewksbury Honey, on July 14 at 7 p.m. to learn all about the Honey Bee -- the amazing lives of bees; beehives; problems with colonies; beekeeping; honey production; and the importance of pollination. Did you know, for example, that pollinators are directly responsible for 33% of our food supply?  Kelley will discuss what can be done to help the honey bee population survive and thrive!

The Kelley family -- Julie, her husband Mike and children Kathryn and Sean -- own and maintain 40 hives around Tewksbury, including two on the grounds of the Tewksbury Public Library. The honey generated from the hives at the library will be donated to the Tewksbury Community Pantry. Tewksbury Honey sells honey and honey products online and at several area Farmers Markets, including Billerica and Tewksbury. Learn more about Tewksbury Honey on their website, www.tewksbury.com.

Adults, teens and children (ages 8 and up) from Tewksbury and beyond are invited to attend this free hour-long event.  A Q&A will take place after the presentation.  Due to limited space, attendees are asked to pre-register and reserve their seats by calling 978-640-4490 x 205, emailing rhayes@mvlc.org, or by visiting the library’s online calendar of events at www.tewksburypl.org.  The event will take place in the library’s first-floor, handicap-accessible Meeting Room.  The library is located at 300 Chandler Street, at the corner of Chandler and Main Street (Route 38).
