Choose New Leisure Reading Titles

November 14, 2008 at 3:44 am | Posted in news, surveys | 2 Comments

Did you think Galvin Library carried only research materials? Well, Galvin also has a Leisure Reading collection full of popular titles, bestsellers and the best in current fiction and non-fiction. Now the library is looking for your input to help select titles for this collection. The Leisure Reading collection is part of a lease program, which allows the library to temporarily place titles on the shelves and then rotate them out for new selections. Leisure Reading is located at the top of the main stairwell on the north side of the stairs, and also features books selected as part of the One Book, One Chicago effort.

The list of titles below will be available to the library beginning in December.  Glance over the titles (read book descriptions in the TechNews article) and give the library your feedback in one of two ways:

  • Comment here on this blog or
  • Tear the list out of TechNews, check off the titles you’d like the library to add and submit the list by placing it in the box on the reference desk on the upper level of the library

However you submit your choices, we’ll compile the votes and stock the shelves with new titles.
