    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 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.
