SBKA LIBRARY SERVICE
WELCOME TO THIS NEWLY REVAMPED SERVICE. PLEASE READ INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY.
HAPPY READING! (That is - of the bee books, not the instructions!!)

As of November 2020 we have the following books etc.. available to borrow.
The period of loan is one month. You can borrow up to 3 items at a time.
If a book is already out on loan there is an "x" next to it. You can still request it and the librarian will try to get it back for you as soon as reasonably practicable.

The Library site is divided into 3 Sections:
Section 1: You are here now and, after these instructions, it lists all the items available for borrowing.
Section 2: Pictures of the items with synopses/reviews (where available).
Section 3: The request form. This has drop down menus and can be used for returns/extensions and feedback.

Simply scroll to the bottom of any Section and click "Next" to move to the next Section.

Please note:
Many of the books are privately owned so please take good care of them.
We may ask you to pay for the replacement cost of any books returned damaged.

NB. FOR COVID-SECURITY, BOOKS MUST BE ORDERED AT LEAST 3 DAYS PRIOR TO COLLECTION

BOOKS / BOOKLETS / PAMPHLETS / MAGAZINES / DVDs etc..
