DON’T KNOW WHERE TO GO ON VACATION?

Unofficial Guide to Disneyland 2010

Taking a vacation is a good time to relax, have fun and travel from place to place. This sounds good but where shall I began? Northwest Branch Library has a travel section which is located in the Non-Fiction Adult area. Travel guides will provide information on the states, restaurants, hotels, recreation sites, cost, and all of the necessary information that will make your travel enjoyable. Come and see if this doesn’t make the decision easier.    

 

 

ONE SIZE FITS ALL

What an interesting concept. There is a product we have in the library which is called magazines. Often times this product is over looked because it does not get the publicity as other reads. However, I find that magazines are really one size fits all. Many of the magazines are based on subject topics such as Yoga, enterprise, people and basketball, just to name a few. At the same time they offer articles, recipes, ideas, travel, health, decorating, exercise, and all the good stuff that makes life living. Most importantly, it is a quick read and a relaxing time saver. Northwest Branch has magazines. They are located right behind the information desk. Come and browse, if you need to check them out it is also possible.
