“The last time I looked there was an extensive library of reference material, including many rare and valuable texts”.
I click on the Members Icon then click on the Druid Library Icon and I get 5 E-Books that are available for Download.
– Animal Lore of Shakespeare’s Time.
– Bear Ceremonialism.
– Dragons & Dragon Lore.
– Gaelic Names of Beast & Birds.
– The Celtic Dragon Myth.
And that is it.
So david poole says there is an Extensive Library of Reference Material. Where is it?
I did notice that the 5 Star Reviews for each Book is Blank. So I might have to read over each E-Book and post a Review for them.

I attempted to Preview ‘Animal Lore of Shakespeare’s Time’ but that did not work so had to Download it. I am currently scanning through it. It was written in 1883 so its Copy Right has expired. After scanning through it a bit, I went back and tried the Icon for rating the Book and that did not work. The only thing that works with the Book is Downloading it.
So there must be some Restorations needed for the BDO Library from what I have seen so far.

This has actually changed from time to time to tell you the truth, it used to be on the main page under Members under Student Support Area it came and went. There used to be several different subject areas each with multiple files in pdf format, then it went away then it came back again. Clearly this has been streamlined somewhat. I still have all of those files if you want to look at them yourself. I don’t know how I would pass them across, maybe by email? I think they were too old to be affected by copyright as they were sometimes medieval or Irish or other quite old files.April 24, 2020 at 4:00 pm #10347
Glanced over the first 28 Pages and it appears to be a no nonsense Zoology Book and describes the Animals and there Characteristic in a concise way. It could be something that Charles Darwin would have approved of.
I have to go do some Community Gardening to put in my Tomatoes and plant more Corn at the Buddhist Temple Community Garden. I will be back this evening to have another look at this E-Book this evening and post a Review about it.

I think I understand the problem here. The library opens up and there’s a column, if you look up at the top, however, and click on the different column headings, different lists of materials come up.April 25, 2020 at 1:56 pm #10374
Oh – That Worked Out. My Confusion is Sorted.
