This is what the IBA is all about.........education on every level and related topic! With the implementation of the club library, we saw the opportunity to select books you were interested in.
Here is how the lending library works.
- Your club membership must be kept current.
- The Librarian will assist setting up your library account online.
- From there, you are free to check out books, one per month and must be returned at the next meeting.
- When you are done using the library, you can request a refund of your deposit
We also appreciate beekeeping books (& related) that are donated.
