AAA's Library

We have our very own impressive library of books in the Observatory.

We have books on everything from introduction to astronomy to in-depth astronomy, biographies, maps and catalogues, physics and maths and even an impressive collection of books about Mars kindly donated by Graham Dale, former President of the Mars Society UK.


We are often visited by authors and like to add their books to our collection.


Books are available to borrow free of charge to our members.


AAA Librarians, Joyce and Jack, highlight books of the month at our Friday night meetings to reflect the programme or current space events so see Jack any Friday for more information.
