Herbal Library

Love to read? Us too! There are SO many books to be found on the subjects of Herbalism now days, which is remarkable as in the 1970's there were nearly none. However, as the topic of botanicals has become ever more popular one can literally find hundreds of books on various subtopics. The guild has comprised the following lists to aid you in selecting literary works for your library.


Please note, while we provide links about the books, we hope you can find a locally owned book store near you to support. Aunties Books, in downtown Spokane is a local gem we hope will be around for generations to come.
