[ARCHIVED] Great reads for the armchair traveler in all of us

books on the bed-145

One of the great things about being a reader is that you can travel to exotic places (and times!) without ever leaving the comfort of your armchair. 

As part of our spotlight on travel resources this month, we’ve rounded up the lists of travel-related reading recommended by our awesome librarians. 

Want to read your way around the world? The staff at Wildwood Library can help! 

Planning a big family road trip? Park Grove Librarian Kristin Jones suggests these family-friendly audiobooks to help pass the time on your drive.

If you prefer the idea of traveling through time instead of traveling to an exotic place, check out these time-travel stories recommended by librarian Lynn Lucking at Hardwood Creek Library. 

Anne Thayer, youth services librarian at Park Grove Library, recommends learning about real places you could go with this collection of kids travel nonfiction, or becoming an armchair traveler with adventure stories to real and imaginary places.

Unfortunately, not all of us will get the chance to go on vacation any time soon. But you can do some armchair traveling through this great collection of DVDs available at the library.
