Member’s Guide to Using the Society’s Library
The Library of the Bristol Naturalists’ Society is a valuable resource. Few natural history societies can match the facilities and content of the library of over 3,000 books occupying some 500ft of shelf space. The Library is open twice a week, except Bank Holiday weekends, to BNS members (bring along current BNS Bulletin to prove membership) when a Library Committee representative will be on duty to provide assistance.
