Written By ROSE DOTTEN

On Tuesday night we had our second Traveler’s Tales event, and this time we “travelled,” armchair-style, to the Caribbean! Brittany from Big Time Travels toured us around Aruba, Bermuda, and Curaçao, and I’m quite sure she inspired travel plans for a few of our patrons. While it is not the next Traveler’s Tales event, we will host a guest speaker who has hiked ALL of the National Parks in Canada! Can you imagine? Her talk will take place in October 2019 and feature the Arctic Parks of Canada, so stay tuned for those details!
