Books for Your End-of-Summer Staycation Adventure!

There's still time to wring some more fun adventures out of the summer, without even leaving the state! We are still hoping to check out Tinkertown and Meow Wolf. The Santa Fe Opera's season continues until the end of August. Gallup's Inter-Tribal Indian Ceremonial is just around the corner, as is Santa Fe's Indian Market. All fun things, but maybe you have a more strenuous adventure in mind, or closer to nature? Camping, birding, hiking - there's a lot of scope for outdoor adventures here in the Land of Enchantment! We hope you'll take advantage of some of the resources the library catalog has to offer when planning your summer fun, whether it's outdoorsy or not so much! Here are some books you might helpful:

As a frequent reader of this blog and a frequent visitor to my local Albuquerque library, I'm honored to see my book "Roadside New Mexico" listed here among so many other great reads. Thank you. -David Pike
