If you haven't been to the Lloyd Library and Museum, I recommend it highly.  Not only do they have beautiful and informative exhibits but you can score a great find in their new shop area on the first floor.  I purchased a botanical drawing that was the perfect gift.
Maggie Heran, the Director, explained that the Lloyd's collection is unique in its span - a collection that is scientifically relevant and artistically stimulating - rare indeed.

Currently on display is an exhibit entitled "What makes the reindeer fly?" and explores the role of hallucinogenic mushrooms throughout the world.

Closer to home, on March 30th, there will be a Medicinal Botany Walk-About.  For mroe information and to register, please go the Lloyd Library and Museums' webpage at lloydlibrary.org..

 

The Library holds, acquires, preserves, and provides access to both historic and current books and journals, as well as archival materials, on a wide variety of disciplines that fall under the following subjects:

 

  • natural history
  • botany
  • pharmacy
  • medicine
  • scientific history
  • visual arts
