Librarian's Corner

Hello everyone,

The Library graciously received a large donation from Nancy R. including:
  • Carnivorous Plants by Adrian Slack
  • Carnivorous Plants of the United States and Canada (1st edition) by Donald Schnell
  • Bulletin of the Australian Carnivorus Plant Society, Inc. journals (March 1995 to December 1999)
  • Carnivorous Plant Newsletter (ICPS) journals (March 1993 to March 2005)

The current BACPS library catalog consists of the following:
  • The Savage Garden Peter D'Amato 1998
  • Growing Carnivorous Plants Barry A. Rice 2006
  • Plant Life on Gunung Kinabalu P. F. Cockburn and Yap Pak Hau 1977
  • Report on the Status of Gulf Coast Carnivorous Plant Populations James M. Miller
  • Many back issues of the Carnivorous Plant Newsletter starting in 1972

The BACPS library is looking for more books! If you are looking to free up some shelf space why not share your gently used books with your fellow club members.
If you would like to borrow any of these books or if you are looking for a specific volume of the CPN send your requests to BACPS Librarian.

Happy reading!
BACPS Librarian
