We will be launching a NEW online catalogue on April 6th. To accommodate this and other changes, the Library will be closed from March 30th to April 5th. During the closure, this website will not be available and members will not be able to place holds or renew items. Your saved lists and shelf information will be available in the new catalogue. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
The Far North is a region shared by the U.S. (Alaska), Canada, Russia, Denmark (Greenland), Norway, Iceland, Sweden and Finland. For those who don't live there, the region appears to be a bleak, desolate place of snow, ice, glaciers and bitter cold. But the Far North is home to many plants, animals and people who have developed remarkable ways of adapting to one of the harshest climates on Earth. The Kids Book of the Far North examines the region's fascinating history, modern life and fragile ecosystem with facts, stories, legends, illustrations, time lines and maps.
