March 2015

The March display is “North American Road Trip Adventures” – Perhaps some of the titles could inspire you to actually plan that long-desired travel adventure or they might bring simply bring you some stress-free armchair enjoyment. The books and videos run the gamut from funny to wry, from passionate to straight-forward, from reminiscences to how-to – but all are, in their own way, factual and informative. Enjoy the trip(s)!

The books chosen are those that would be of interest to the general adult reader with an interest in all aspects of science and technology. Books can be borrowed or purchased at cost ($10 or less, often much less).
