Travel the World at Your Public Library
If you missed the January tour of Scandinavia, no worries. There are still two more opportunities to see the world at your public library! Join us the last Wednesdays of February and March when Carol Phelps, a world traveler since the age of three, presents two more exciting travelogues. Carol has visited over 40 countries, and with camera in hand, she’s navigated rain forests and deserts, mountain peaks and tropical islands, remote villages and bustling cities, capturing the sights, sounds, and culture of many countries. And after each engaging armchair tour, we will indulge in a delicious treat from the country we visited!
Wednesday, February 24th - ITALY
Wednesday, March 30th - FRANCE
Programs run from 1:00 - 2:30 PM
Please call 798-3881 to sign up!
Stories to Keep Us Warm
