…and bee books for libraries

The BeemanGreene County Farm Bureau board members Mark Naberhaus of Scranton and Barry Anderson of Paton recently made book presentations on behalf of Greene County Farm Bureau to the Scranton and Paton public libraries.

The book, The Beeman, was selected by the American Farm Bureau as its Book of the Year.  Written by Laurie Krebs of Virginia, the book introduces young readers to bees, beekeepers, and the pollination process.

The Book of the Year award springs from the American Farm Bureau Foundation’s effort to identify “accurate ag books.”  Book of the Year selections are educational, help to create positive public perceptions about agriculture, inspire readers to learn more and touch their readers’ lives as well as tell the farmer’s story.

Greene County Farm Bureau district director Mark Buskohl of Grundy Center attended the American Farm Bureau annual meeting in San Antonio, TX, earlier this year where the books were available for county and state leaders.  Buskohl picked up several copies and brought them back to Iowa for the counties in his district.  Buskohl presented two copies of the book to Greene county board members at their March board meeting.
