BOTETOURT COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) - Botetourt County Libraries now have Birding Backpacks for checkout thanks to a donation from the Roanoke Valley Bird Club.

The packs are full of birding materials, including the National Geographic Birds of Eastern North America field guide, Vortex Crossfire 8x42 binoculars with case, straps and lens cleaning cloth and Sibley’s Backyard Birds of the Mid-Atlantic laminated foldout.
