2021 Armchair Travel: Escape Around the World without Leaving Home
There is no doubt Summit County residents love to travel and 2020 has not been an easy year for those hodopiles stuck at home!
Here at the library, we can't keep the newest guide books on the shelves for long. No destination is too remote and no adventure too daunting.
For the last 15 years, Janet Good, Friends of the Library president, has sought out our traveling locals and invited them to show off their captivating pictures from their trips around the world. This year we have another wonderful line up of locals who will be sharing exciting stories, beautiful photos and travel advice virtually.
In the start of 2021, we are all looking to escape more then ever. So we invite you to sit back on Thursdays evenings this winter, and enjoy a variety of journeys from the comfort of your 'armchair.' There is something for everyone so don't miss the chance to ignite your travel bug and book those plane tickets as soon as the pandemic is over.
Here is this year's line up:
