The Great Seal of the Library Company of Burlington features a “skep” or bee-hive, symbol of Industry (“busy as a bee”). It rests on books (Knowledge) atop a pillar of Science built on a foundation of Truth, buttressed by Literature and Art. The motto, “Extract from every flower is sweet”, often accompanied the Seal.
