Library books

It has come to our attention that there is some misinformation out there regarding books donated to the museum's library so I would like to clarify this. All books donated to the library are are placed in the library. If they are duplicates of ones we already have, with the donor's permission, we choose whichever is the lesser quality and sell it to raise funds for the library. We have over 5,000 books as well as hundreds of documents relating to witchcraft and the occult. We have recently added more shelving to accommodate the growing number of books. There is no charge to use the research library but an appointment must be made and we do suggest that researchers become members of Friends. This is not compulsory. Friends is a charity which raises funds for the ongoing preservation of artifacts and books. If anyone has any queries about museum matters please contact the museum directly.
