Members Library


The Victorian Carnivorous Plant Society has an extensive free library available for current members of the Society. Books and Videos can be collected at the monthly meetings, and returned the following meeting. Sorry, however due to past problems, library items cannot be posted. They must be collected personally from a meeting. The Victorian Carnivorous Plant Society would like to take this opportunity to thank all those people and other societies that have contributed books, magazines, newsletters, journals, DVDs and videos to the VCPS Library.
