Passport to the World
Ever suffer from wanderlust? Look out the window and see much farther than the next house or tree, and wish Star Trek transporters really existed?
Look out the window and see the rain and wind and wish for someplace warmer?
Look around you and wish for someplace, any place more exotic, more exciting, or just different?
Look at the amount of money it takes to travel these days and just sigh?
OK, going someplace in a book or video is not the same as actually being there, but it can be a great way to visit without the hassle. Travel books and videos can take you around the world. Fiction books can take you around the world and into space and time, made all the more rich by your own imagination.
Your library card is as good as a passport…come see the world.
