The Library Staff Picks: Summer Reading

You are finished with exams, or nearly finished. You can nearly feel the freedom that comes with summer: no homework, swimming and picnics, and, perhaps some summer reading.

If the latter is a priority, the library has selected a few books to fill the warm summer days. You can find them on display in the library lobby.

From all of us at the library, have a relaxing, adventurous, and  fun summer!
