Children’s Area under “Construction”

0

IMG_0600No, we are not building a new Children’s Library, sorry.  We are in the process of rearranging our collection of children’s books.  Shortly, you will find most of our children’s books in a different spot.  We are starting with Juvenile Readers and Juvenile Series (picture books with familiar characters).  Their new spot will be in the first shelf behind our Children’s DVD’s, which are not moving.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this move will cause you.  We hope to have it completed by early January.  We also hope this move will make our children’s area flow a little more logically.

Holiday travels

0

With the holiday season upon us, travel is to be expected for most people and many will take long trips than usual.  For those who don’t depend on GPS or don’t have computer access, the library system has copies of atlases available that can be checked out for use on long trips.  The Rand McNally Road Atlas is perfect for long trips and trips to and threw unfamiliar areas.

 

Other road maps can be found in the 912’s of the non-fiction section.  If your trip has time for a detour or a detour can be made without haste, there are many books with road trip ideas.  These are located in the 917 section of the non-fiction.  Ohio Road Trips by Neil Zurcher has 52 trips that can be made part of a Christmas vacation.

 

 

If your trip involves children, you may want to consider a family friendly trip.  Fun With the Family: Ohio has many great ideas that are broken up into five regions of Ohio.

 

 

 

Hopefully these books and resources can make a plain trip more entertaining over the next month and expand your experience.  Happy Holidays and safe travels and have a happy new year!
