June is a great time to start planning your summer vacation and the library can help you with your planning. The library has a wonderful selection of travel guides covering the world from Arizona to Zambia. If you wish to get a preview before your arrival at your destination, check out one of the many travel DVDs that offer beautiful scenery, tips on customs and food and fun destinations. And if you're not travelling this summer, the DVDs can provide you with awe and adventure without even leaving home.
Once you've chosen your destination, you have to endure the inconvenience that defines air travel these days. Carrying books on airplanes can add weight to your luggage and that can be an expensive problem. We have a solution. Download your favorite e-book or audio book to your device for free using the library's downloading service here. In addition to e-books and e-audio books, magazines are available through Flipster and movies, TV shows, music, comics and more are available through Hoopla. All of these free services are available from the link above. If you need some help getting started, stop in to the library before your vacation to get assistance or instruction on downloading.
If you do take some Summit Library books or other library materials to the far corners of the globe, take a picture with our materials and share it with us. We will post the pictures on our website and give a prize to the person who takes Summit Library materials the furthest. Happy trails!
