A to Z World Travel
We have purchased a subscription to a database that anyone can access from the library or at home. It's called A to Z World Travel. You can look up all kinds of information about countries and cities around the world for school reports or if you are planning a trip to some exotic location and you want to know what to expect when you get there. Just click on the link below and type in the username and password and you're on our way. After you've tried it send an email to the library to let us know if it was helpful or not. We are trying it out for a year to see if his is a worthwhile program so your feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Knitting nights at the library has been changed back to every Monday at 4:00 p.m. Bring in a project you're working on or come willing to learn new techniques.
