A member of the Alachua Audubon Society will share his delight and expertise on the subject of birdwatching, a fascinating hobby that is suitable for people of all ages. We hope you'll join us at 6 pm on Monday, March 6th in the Meeting Room of the Newberry Branch Library for this event.
In the meantime, if you are interested in learning more about birds and birding, check out some of these titles. Or, if you are just wanting to browse around in the stacks (library jargon for "shelves where the books are"), the call numbers for birds and birding and bird watching are in the 598s.
