SWANTON, Vt. (AP) - It’s safe to go in the library in Swanton, Vermont, now that the bees are gone.

The 99-year-old library had been closed for a while. As officials prepared to reopen it, they found one of four Corinthian columns in the front was filled with tens of thousands of honeybees.

The St. Albans Messenger reports (https://bit.ly/1HLcOzv) earlier this month, a crane removed the columns and local beekeepers rounded up the insects and got them to a new hive.

They discovered eight pounds of honey inside the column.
