Looking and Finding

Like maps? Really big maps? Perhaps bound together in the convenient format of a book? You, dear readers, are looking for an atlas. Ok, maybe you knew that, but did you know we have an atlas with maps of historic railroad lines? Did you? All right then. The Des Moines Public Library stocks all kinds of atlases and we've got them in all our locations. Sometimes you can't check the atlas out. Some are so gigantic they might not fit through the door anyway. But perfect for a lazy afternoon when you just want to sit in the library and find out where stuff was in the Middle Ages. If you don't get lost on the way to the library - for lack of a map! - a world of colorful exploration awaits you. Come see! Comme sa! Couldn't resist. Not even sorry.
