The idea behind the BeeHive is that the library is a meeting place-a forum for the presentation of interesting topics-place where folks want to discuss and sometimes debate ideas. Libraries are more exciting places when this kind of activity is encouraged and planned for. Librarians are looking for ways to create spaces that liberate natural, spontaneous conversations, as well as provide opportunities for presentations that although they are separated from the general flow of traffic are still somewhat integrated into the library atmosphere.
The Beehive provides the ability to create a physical separation for this kind of activity that serves to stimulate the greater environment. In addition to separation, the Beehive Wall provides two sided shelving upon which information to support and stimulate conversation on interesting, prescient local, national, and global issues.
