Plan Your Getaway at Firestone!

Whether it is Washington, D.C. or Kandy, Sri Lanka, Library patrons may now plan their trips with Firestone’s Travel Guides collection. The collection is part of the popular Dixon Leisure Reading Collection and offers current Lonely Planet and Rough Guides travel titles to all areas covered by both publishers. The collection has its own discrete shelving section in Firestone Library, located in the east end of the first floor just outside the Dulles Reading Room, and is organized alphabetically according to place or destination. The guides may also be found through the Catalog and each title circulates for a four-week period.

The Library will also continue to collect thematic travel guides, such as art and architecture guides or historic trail guides, to name just a few, but those will be part of other collections within the Library system. If you’re looking for those classic Baedecker guides, head to the Firestone stacks.
