The Moir Library

The Association has an extensive private library of books and periodicals, housed at a central location in Edinburgh but available to members across the country through a variety of methods.

The History of the Moir Library goes back to 1912, and is a classic example of how one man's enthusiasm eventually led to the establishment of a valuable resource which is now available to benefit many others. Under normal circumstances books may only be borrowed by fully paid up members of the Scottish Beekeepers Association.


The Moir Library Rare Books Collection

The Moir Rare Book Collection, held at the National Library of Scotland, is separate from the lending collection held at Fountainbridge Library. It contains books on beekeeping, mostly published prior to the year 1801, although there are a few published a little later than that.
