The excellent book collection in the Niven Library (over 6,000 titles) is the result of 50 years of donations, bequests, exchanges, review books and purchases. Known as the premier ornithological library in the southern hemisphere, the library supplies African ornithological information to all corners of the world as well as supporting academic African ornithology and the birding public.

As the library receives ongoing donations, many of which are duplicates, the book sale is a permanent library fund-raising initiative - as long as there are suitable books to sell! If you would like to donate books to the library for the book sale, please contact the Librarian.

If you would like to purchase out-of-print and collector’s books while at the same time supporting African ornithology, browse through the list and contact the Librarian to arrange payment.
