Get the Birding Supplies You Need

Why birding backpacks? Palm Beach County is a world-renowned destination for birders and nature lovers, and the Library System has maintained one of the largest ornithological collections in the Southeast United States for over 35 years, thanks to its partnership with the Audubon Society of the Everglades. This new venture will allow the Library to serve as a resource for both novice and expert birders.

This project was made possible through the generosity of the Friends of the Palm Beach County Library System, the Audubon Society of the Everglades and R.J. Roberts & Co. Make sure to reserve your birding backpack today!
