The Marshall Public Library in Old Town Pocatello has a new display that features the lives of native bees to the United States, specifically in Idaho.

The new display highlights the diversity of pollinators and has many pictures, posters, and handouts which reflect the importance of their habitats and how they affect our lives.

The display also shows how insects are facing global threats and has books related to these bees that are available to be checked out.

Both the Idaho Department of Fish and Game and the Caribou-Targhee National Forest collaborated to make this display possible.

Kathryn Poulter, Children's Librarian at Marshall Public Library said, "Without pollinators, we wouldn't have any of the fruit, flowers, or bushes, or trees that make our planet beautiful and not only that if we don't have our pollinators then our planet would start to die."

The display is located in the Storytime Room on the first floor of the library through the beginning of December.
