2pm • Afternoon Storytime
A Bee-Themed Afternoon Storytime will be presented in the Children's Library Story Room in honor of our buzzy bee friends. They’ve worked hard to make this year’s tasty crop of Library Honey!

3–4pm • Honey Harvest Celebration
Come celebrate the end of summer and get a taste of this season’s honey crop on the Main Library Rooftop Terrace! Meet Frank Whitby, the Salt Lake City Beekeeper, and check out the library’s new beehives. Frank applied for the 2013 Slow Food Utah grant and received funding to purchase two top-bar beehives (demonstration hives with display windows) for the library.

The honey will be harvested on Aug 31 by Frank Whitby and Boy Scout Troop 202, St. Ambrose Parish, East Millcreek District. The Library Honey will then be entered in this year’s Utah State Fair.
