She says that while it's not a very complicated hobby, hosting bees takes a bit more work than it used to and it's good for those who are curious about it to know what they are actually getting into before starting. Bee Lives is hosting an introduction to beekeeping class that Rice says she'd also recommend for those looking to make their backyards more bee-friendly. The class will be held on Sunday June 11 and Saturday June 24 from 10am to 12:30pm and costs $30. To register, go to Learn what to plant in your garden to attract bees and learn how to make "bee tea" (a concoction that mimics pollen) by visiting Cash in on FREE classes Your local library has so much more to offer than stacks of books and the children's section. For example, the Kingston Public Library holds a weekly Stress Reduction through Meditation workshop on Mondays. The Starr Library in Rhine- beck has a special event on June 23 at which you will learn the moves and benefits of belly dancing. The Newburgh Free Library will play host to a special workshop led by the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival in which participants will collec- tively create a play about the women's suffragette movement. These are just a few of the self-improvement programs offered at your local library. To find similar programs in your area, visit us online at or visit your local library's website.
