Library Books and Library Service

Thanks to new acquisitions and kind donations, the number of books available to our members is growing steadily. The collection ranges from ‘vintage texts’ to recently published books and covers a wide variety of bee-related topics.

From in depth studies of bee anatomy, diseases, husbandry and honey production to medicinal, cosmetic and culinary use of hive products; from discussion of international research and discussion of environmental concerns to light hearted anecdotal accounts – there is something of interest for everyone.

The Library Service is available at our meetings at Portchester Parish Hall.
