The warm days of summer and school summer break are coming quickly and it is time to start thinking about summer fun! Many of our library visitors are thinking about vacations, get away weekends or day trips. Summer is a great time for children to learn about our state of Pennsylvania and some of the many amazing attractions that may be only a short drive away! Pennsylvania by M.J. York This book gives an overview of Pennsylvania by giving the reader interesting facts about our state. It includes some history, maps and famous residents. Fabulous pictures help the whole family get excited about our wonderful state.
But what does your family want to do or see? Check out Fun with the Family Pennsylvania: hundreds of ideas for day trips with the kids This is a guide book for families with young children. The entire state of Pennsylvania is profiled by area and activities offered.

Maybe you are more interested in a day trip to Philadelphia. In the book Philadelphia’s Outdoor Art: a walking tour the author describes the outdoor art located in and around Philadelphia and the best way to see it all – by walking!
But if the city is not your thing, perhaps a hiking guide will inspire your small adventurers.
