Magazines for the summer

Summer is coming and we will soon be crawling, bleary-eyed, out of our homes into the sunshine and outdoors. When that happens, keep a few of the new library magazines in mind for some summer reading and entertainment.
Camping Life is chock full of articles about all the new gear and hotspots that campers love. Recipes, camping tips, wildlife, and trail signs are regular features, and the current issue has details on over 1,000 campgrounds around North America (including state, city, county and privately-owned sites).
Fish Alaska covers the best in Alaskan fishing from all over the state. The February issue features an article about Ketchikan's Beacon Hill Lodge. Other articles focus on safety, travel, fly fishing, recipes, tackle and salmon. If you've already thumbed through all our great fishing manuals, you should try this magazine out.
Organic Gardening is full of advice on how to boost your soil, protect your plants from pests and diseases, grow bigger and better flowers, fruits and vegetables, and do it all as safely and naturally as possible. The current issue has an article on tomatoes for every climate. (We grew a lovely crop of cherry tomatoes in our little plastic greenhouse. It is possible in Ketchikan!)
Trailer Life is all about RVs: purchasing, maintaining, outfitting and enjoying. There are lots of travel ideas, reader tips, and advice for getting the most out of your recreational vehicle. If you're thinking of purchasing an RV, this is a fabulous resource for getting ideas and warnings.
All of our back issues check out for 3 weeks, so you can fill up your arms and bring them all home to read at your leisure. We also have a photocopier, if you would like to copy articles from the most current issue.
