. Update June 2014: In a callous act of vandalism, the "new management team" gave most of the library books away to passing visitors, thereby effectively destroying this unique collection which was intended as a gift to future generations. About 750 books were stolen from this unique collection of 1500 books. Feel free to email them.

The titles struck-through are no longer available

Note! Use the Edit/Find option of your Internet Browser to find books quickly.


The Seafriends library is a collection of books brought together for the benefit of visitors to the Marine Conservation and Education Centre.You will find here books about most activities relating to the use of the sea. You will even encounter hard to find publications about the sea creatures around us. Other books allow youto 'peep' into other oceans. The library also contains a vast number of old books. Where these books predate the era of diving, they recount the unbelievable adventures of the explorers and seafarers.

The library also has scientific books about how living organisms work, how the seas were created and how the land was formed because in the end all this relates to the underwater world. And then there is the land we travel over to reach our diving destinations. It too is inhabited by species that are very interesting to observe and to know more about. After all, this is OUR country. Important are also the reference works, the encyclopedia to enable you to use your study time here more effectively.

Finally we have allowed a number of lighthearted works such as picture books for the reading table. In order to keep up to date, the Seafriends library is continually supplied with new books and it is here that you can be of help. If you have books at home that are merely gathering dust, then why not donate or lend them to us? An acknowledgement is pasted in the front of the book as you can see from the many books already donated to us. Each library book is covered in strong transparent polythene film to minimise damage.

The mix of books found in the Seafriends library was intended for a variety of customers we expect: the divers, their spouses and children, backpackers, casual visitors, primary school children, secondary school children, university students and visiting scientists.


The books have been sorted into categories so that you can focus your search on your areas of interest. We imagine that you will also use this catalogue to browse through. In this catalogue all books appear sorted by the main author's name. Sometimes a category of books is taken together such as Reader's Digest, Time-Life and the Leigh Marine Lab Publications. Each book in this catalogue has its category marked such as: BOATS. Likewise each book has its category marked on the lending record glued inside its cover. So it is relatively easy to locate a book and to put it back in place.

If you wish to borrow a book, read the instructions on the /books/index.htm page.

 Please be careful with our books!
