The Library Has Books

Just a reminder that if you are looking for some summer reading without spending money, the library can help, plus it’s a great place to sit and read on your rest day, or when it’s raining. And if you don’t live here – no worries! We’ll mail the book to you for free as part of your member benefit.

Not only do we have guidebooks so you can plan your trips, we’ve got fiction (mysteries, detective novels!),  photography, history, travel narratives from the 19th century to today, vhs and dvds – all kinds of stuff to entertain and inspire –
