July 2023 Events at Brainerd Memorial Library

Submitted by Brainerd Memorial Library

(July 2, 2023) — Have you ever wanted to see the inside of a working honeybee hive? Can you tell the difference between a queen bee and a worker bee?

Climb into a bee suit and join Andrew Burnett from Drew’s Honeybees on Saturday, July 8, 2023, as he educates us about his working honeybee hives in the library’s back yard.

Andrew has been beekeeping for dozens of years. He maintains eleven apiaries in eastern Connecticut with about 120 hives.

We will hold two sessions, one at 11:00 a.m. and the other at 1:30pm. Children can attend the 11:00 a.m. session with an accompanying adult. Please sign up for only one session.



Culinary Book Club: In this unique book club we gather together to talk about our favorite recipes that we have brought to the meeting. If you need inspiration for a dish, we have books to help you.

July 12, 2023, 6:30 p.m. “From “Crook” to Cook.” Brainerd Library will provide cookbooks by celebrity chefs who have been in prison; for example, Snoop Dog and Martha Stewart. A requirement of the club is to bring a dish. We will meet in the History Room.  (New themes coming soon!)


==================================      Crafting Connections: On Monday, July 10, 2023 at 5:30 p.m., go with the flow and join us for an uplifting and relaxing evening of playing with watercolors. No experience necessary; all you need is a desire to have fun and create art. We will provide a variety of materials to experiment with. We will meet on the back lawn of the library, weather permitting.  This is an in-person class.  Please note that space is limited for this program and registration is required. This craft is for ages 16+.
