The Homer Township Public Library is to host the latest presentation of Armchair Travelers at 2 p.m. on Feb. 5. 

This talk will tour Norway via train trips that wind through the gorges of the mountains and then cruise on the Fjords that are deep valleys carved by huge glaciers thousands of years ago and then were filled up by seawater.

The scenery is dramatic as the ship barely scrapes through steep walled crevasses. Guests will also visit Bergen and Trondheim to complete the tour. The presentation will be given by Bill Helmuth.
