Redditch Local History Society

We have a small range of History Books covering Redditch and the local area which have been donated by supporters.

These are not particularly scarce but are generally out of print.

They are available for loan to paid up members .

Simply contact the secretary (contact) and the requested book  can be brought to the next Society meeting.

Members borrowing books will be responsible for them and will be expected to take due care of this resource.

The current library is:
