"Pathfinders" are guides to information the library has to offer. Sometimes when you are searching on a topic, the library has things in lots of different locations. You might find books in the non-fiction section or in the biography section; books for kids and books for adults; electronic books and audio books; websites; DVDs and videos; and more. That makes it more difficult to track down everything that might be helpful.

That's why librarians put together Pathfinders -- to make it easier for you to find all kinds of resources on a topic. If you have an idea for a Pathfinder topic, give us a call at 715-476-2366.
