Seafarers Libraries

 Welcome to the Marine Society Seafarers Library Service  a charitable operation whose aim is to promote  books within the maritime sector supporting both reading at sea and providing maritime information for professionals seeking to develop their roles.

Reading is vital to well-being especially for those who, like seafarers, experience long periods of isolation; reading stimulates the mind and imagination, helping better to combat depression and fatigue than most other media.

Our aim is to provide a generous selection of subsidised reading matter to suit all tastes made up from feedback from our customers.

You can order a paperback library which is yours to keep and comprises of great value bestselling paperbacks.

We have links with other book charities like the Reading Agency and the Book Trust; our customers include Shell and Maersk and maritime training establishments such as Clyde Marine.
