Hi everyone! I worked up a booklist for a Young Adult Fiction display at the library. The theme is "Travel." All the books in the first list are available at the Lakeport library or available on order from a nearby library. You can order any or all of these books right from your home by searching here through the library catalog. Enjoy!

     I can't make any promises that these books won't include "questionable content," because I picked them based on the theme and haven't read them all.
