Now you're Talking  : all you need to get your first ham radio license / edited by Larry D. Wolfgang.  This book is exactly right for someone who wants to become a ham radio operator. This book does two things. It is a self study course that will allow you to pass the Technician level FCC test. It is also a general introduction to all of ham radio, covering the highlights of all that can be done in amateur radio. It has just the right level of sophistication to give a good understanding of all facets of amateur radio but does not get into such extreme detail that it is overwhelming. The technical level is just right as well.
ARRL Handbook : a single volume radio encyclopedia.  Various year versions are scattered around the library system.  Many of the best projects continue from year to year, with a few changes and updates.
Ham Radio for Dummies : Operators transmit data and pictures, use the Internet, laser, and microwave transmitters, and travel to places high and low to make contact. In an emergency or natural disaster, ham radio can replace downed traditional communication and save lives. Whether you’re just getting turned on to ham radio or already have your license, Ham Radio for Dummies helps you with the terminology, the technology and the "talknology."
Radio Rescue : In 1923, after learning Morse code and setting up his own amateur radio station, a twelve-year-old boy sends a message that leads to the rescue of a family stranded by a hurricane in Florida. Based on experiences of the author's father.
A Spark to the Past : Kim Stafford and Marc Lawrence are blown on the winds of time back to a wagon train in 1845. Their 20th century knowledge and ham radios are the only chance for survival on the Oregon Trail.
