The public is invited to the North Platte Public Library at noon May 30 for a free program titled “Bees: Pollinators and Your Landscape” presented by Extension Educator, David Lot.

Lot will talk about the fascinating world of bees; different kinds; colony collapse disorder; and finally, the plants you can add to your landscape to increase nectar and pollen for bee colonies.

Bees are an integral part of our agricultural system. Without them, fresh fruits, fresh vegetables, nuts, even coffee plants will not be able to produce their fruit, which will drastically affect our diet and food supply, library spokeswoman Terri Johnson said.

Learn what you can do to help prevent bee colony collapse, a topic of widespread interest.  

This program is part of the library's Literary Elements Summer Reading Series for adults that kicks off May 27. 

This is an independent reading program. Participants read as much as they like during the summer (May 27-Sept. 27). 

 Books may be fiction, non-fiction, audio books or e-books. There will be weekly prize drawings at 5 p.m. every Saturday during the summer, starting June 7. The program is for those 18 and older.
