Whether you're planning an out-of-town vacation this summer, or just going to stick around the good 'ol state of Indiana, here's a suggestion -- read up on the places you're going to visit before you go!
Here at the Library, we have non-fiction books about the states, biographies of famous people, and lots of picture book and chapter book stories set in real places. Before you take your trip, check out some of these books and familiarize yourself with the area and the people!
Here are some suggestions if you're planning a "stay-cation" here in Indiana:
H is for Hoosier: An Indiana Alphabet
by Cynthia Furlong Reynolds
The Best of Fort Wayne, Volumes 1 and 2
by George Mather
The Teacher's Funeral: A Comedy in Three Parts
by Richard Peck
