Did you know that you can get all kinds of publications from the Federal Government, at the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO)? If you have not heard about this, check it out at Bookstore.GPO.Gov now. You can find publications for adults and kids on all kinds of topics including fire safety, wildlife, national parks, NASA and so much more. They even have some on sale for half price or less.
Check out my video for an in-depth look at some booklets I recently received.
When you browse the bookstore online, you will be amazed at the variety of Government publications from this agency that opened their doors over 150 years ago. Beyond the publications, the agency produces the Congressional Record, Federal Register, the nation’s passports, and other Federal Government documents. It also maintains the Federal Depository Library Program to ensure public libraries nationwide have access to Federal published information. If you are in Washington, D.C. you can visit the physical GPO Bookstore.
The books for kids feature games, puzzles and activities that are fun and educational. These books can accompany your trip to a National Park or to be used when teaching kids about important environmental issues. Check it out and let me know what you think in the comments.
