Collin's Guidebook Donation

Councillor John Faragher who gave a talk at the library on the 11th April about foraging has kindly donated a set of Collin’s guidebooks on behalf of the Society for the Preservation of the Manx Countryside and Environment.

Councillor Faragher who is chairman of the Society said, “I am pleased to present Douglas Borough Council’s Henry Bloom Noble Library with a set of the Collin’s Identification Guides. This is to kick-start the Society’s assistance in producing an excellent reference section for all the budding countryside explorers out there. Hopefully helping the future custodians of the countryside gain knowledge for the island around us.”
