Books about explorers

If you are looking for a biography, you can go directly to the biography section of the library, which is in the main room. The books are arranged in alphabetical order by the name of the person about whom the book is written.  (Each spine label will have a "B" on it followed by a name. For example, biographies of George Washington are labeled "B WASHINGTON.") There are also collective biographies, which are books that have information about groups of people.  For instance, you might find a book about important women in history or explorers or Black mathematicians. Most of these books are in the 920 section.
