"I'm Looking For A Book to Read": Finding Leisure Reading in the Library: Home

This guide will help you learn about finding fun reading material in the Library.

Is There Anything Good To Read Around Here?

Sometimes people come up to the Reference Desk, looking for "something to read." At times, they are very specific; they're looking for John Green, or an inspirational book. Other times, they are very vague: "y'know, just something." It isn't always the easiest thing to look for leisure, or pleasure, reading in an academic library. Yet it can be done in this one. This guide will talk about how you can find books, both fiction and nonfiction, that you can enjoy reading.
