Take the Library with You on Vacation!
Thinking about that dream trip to New Zealand, or just heading out to Provincetown for a soak? No matter where you might be going, Falmouth Public Library is your best traveling companion.
Let’s start with the basics. You need a map and a plan. You could begin with classic travel guides from experts like Rick Steves, the folks at Lonely Planet, or Fodor’s. Did you know that we have many of these in ebook format too? Just download and go! If you’d like a virtual visit to help you figure out where you’d like to go, check out our DVD travel collection. Interested in discovering more about your destination? Dig deep with our subscription to Consumer Reports and find guides on buying hotel rooms and travel and vacation.
If you’re traveling to a foreign country, it’s a good idea to learn at least a few common phrases in the language spoken there. We’ve got options for you! Mango is an online language-learning resource covering 72 languages (including Pirate) which is available 24/7 so you can study wherever and whenever you want to. The library also has a great selection of language-learning resources on CD, as well as dictionaries and language books.
