Beehive Book Reading Program

The Beehive Book reading program is to encourage students to read different types of books. The Beehive books are selected by a state committee of book loving people that pick some of the best books for Utah students to read.

Beehive Book Party

Every year the library hosts the Beehive Book Party.  This party is to reward students in grades 3-6 that have read 20 or more of the Beehive Books.  Come talk to Miss Nelson if you are interested.
