Culinary Literacy Center
Parkway Central Library
Join us for a very special Saturday family program that combines maps, children's literature, and real live honeybees!
The Free Library’s newest exhibition, Mapping Imagination: The Art of World-Building, explores the creative and artistic choices that mapmakers use to build worlds and enhance storytelling. One very adorable item from the exhibition is a hand-drawn map of the Hundred Acre Woods, the home of Winnie the Pooh.
This program will bring together a food librarian, a children's librarian, and a very special guest, Don Shump, a beekeeper from the Philadelphia Bee Company. We will visit the beehives on the Culinary Literacy Center rooftop, learn all about the inner-workings of the hives, and enjoy honeyed snacks. Then, we will be treated to a story-time all about honey.
This event is free and open to families with children ages 5 and up. Pre-registration is required. Please register here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/winnie-the-pooh-and-honey-too-tickets-622527555677
