Travel Books

Anyone out there thinking of traveling this winter or next spring?  Is an all-inclusive in some hot Caribbean country not what you’re looking for?  A trip to the library’s travel section may be just what you need to inspire you to research an out of the way, or out of the ordinary travel experience.  The library has all kinds of travel resources to help.  

 The library offers many different brands of travel guidebooks and each traveller will find a format that appeals to them.  Some of the most popular are:   Fodor’s and Frommer’s which many find easy to use;  Rough Guides offer more cultural information than some of the others; Eyewitness Travel Guides are illustrated and great for planning a trip;  Rick Steve’s Guides have gained in popularity but are more costly, so not necessarily as plentiful.  Of course the most common is Lonely Planet guides which are aimed at the budget traveller.  

The Lonely Planet book I have in front of me is Croatia.  (A destination that a friend recommends highly).  It is full of maps, activities, and lists of places to eat and stay.

The library also has travel magazines, (like Outpost, National Geographic and more), and DVDs, so drop in if you have the travel bug.
