Summer Reading Program Presents: National Parks

Adventure is the theme for this year’s Summer Reading Program. This week we’re featuring books about our National Parks. In fact, did you know that you can visit our national parks without even leaving your home? Many of our National Parks offer virtual tours. For more information, go to the National Parks website.

Perhaps you’d rather read about our national parks. Our collection contains everything from history to mystery, with romance in between. Check out the titles in our collection. Remember, adventure begins at your library!
