Some Non-Fiction Tales

Libraries love books! Big surprise, right? We especially delight in providing you with non-fiction titles. Books about stuff... real stuff... the economy, world events or conditions, cooking, caring, and even coping.

Non-fiction books can help young readers pick a career or select a college. They can teach anyone to do any variety of things from how to decorate to how to build something to how to use the internet. Some books can even advise you on the best ways to spend your money, or more importantly how not to spend your money. They take readers on tours of foreign countries; and allow them access into the lives of other people such as Bonnie and Clyde, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and Abigail and John Adams.

So, while fiction is often (and will probably always be) the favored section for many readers, take a walk on the wild side and try a non-fiction title! Maybe you can even solve the mystery of who stole the Mona Lisa in 1911.
