CHRISTY'S BLUEBIRD PROJECT

LIBRARY BB BOOKS

South Florida Available Bluebird Materials:

Having educational material is most important to learn from.  Not everyone is going to have a mentor to learn from, in how to be a good Monitor, or how to care for your bird houses. Books and videos will be your teachers.
 
Most of the Bluebird materials are written for both the novice, and the expert to enjoy, and learn from.  There are only two videos that I know.  And less than ten Bluebird books.  The books are all fast reading and written in sections which you can easily find starting and stoping places.  Look in the Book section of this site for Bluebird book reviews.
 
Part of my Bluebird Project to promote Bluebirds, was to see that Bluebird materials were available at local libraries.  I contacted each of the below libraries and asked if they would purchase more Bluebird materials.  From asking the libraries to purchase materials, they purchased 22 more, to add to the six total that all libraries had, for a total of 28 Bluebird books and videos, which are now available in four counties in South Florida.
 
You too can see that Bluebird books are put in your local libraries.  All you have to do is ask.  Let me know what happens.

Note:  Your library card is good to use in either Sarasota or Manatee counties.  Books do need to be dropped off in the right county, but at any of that counties libraries.  If material is not located in the library close to you, call them and they will send the material where you want to pick it up.
