The Traveling Librarian presents Norway
Join Reference Librarian Jeff Klapes, ‘The Traveling Librarian,’ for an armchair traveler’s journey to Norway. From the eminently livable capital of Oslo, over the mountains to Bergen, a historic port, Norway's scenery is staggering in its beauty. The coastal towns and rural farms nestled in the northern fjord country are not to be missed. Jeff Klapes is the Head of Reference Services at the Lucius Beebe Memorial Library in Wakefield, Massachusetts.
About the speaker: Jeff Klapes has been Head of Reference Services at Wakefield’s Beebe Library for 26 years, where he is also known as the “Traveling Librarian”. Having visited more than 50 countries and five continents over the years, he does frequent armchair travel presentations showcasing the history and culture of various places, using photography to capture people, scenery, and local details. From Iceland to Namibia, Laos to Oman, Jeff has visited many off-the-beaten path places, as well as more popular ports of call. And of course, as a librarian, he also reads voraciously about his destinations to learn about their culture, history, politics, literature, nature, and cuisine.
