Carr RECreational READing Collection: Home


Due to popular demand, Carr Library now has a collection of recreational reading material (primarily fiction). If you are at the library, you can find the collection directly behind the Information/Reference desk. All of these books have a red sticker on their spine.

If you are not at the library, you can still search for these books in the Libraries' catalog. These books have a sub location of RECREAD. If you find one you would like delivered to another location, select "Book Delivery" on the right of the record.

Additional recreational reading books can be found at the Alexander Library in the reference room on the first floor.

The loan period for these books is six weeks and they may be renewed one time.
