    Home sweet home - Star news
    By Melissa Komar While libraries are often perceived as quiet places, there's quite a buzz at the Richmond Branch of the Free Library of Philadelphia. On Thursday, June 7, a colony of approximately 10,000 honey bees, with one queen, arrived at the Port Richmond library, and was installed in an observation box fitted in a window to the far right of the entrance.
