Let the reading begin!

Let the reading begin!

Welcome to week 1 of the Pages of Power (PoP3) library reading extravaganza! I hope you’ve all seen the emails encouraging you to get started reading for fun and to share your reading with the rest of our community at http://reading.thebookloverinme.com/index.html. When you read a book that is available in our library or through LINK+ and post your thoughts about the book on the reading blog you'll be adding to the community of readers on campus and be eligible for a small gift after your first, fifth and tenth books!

The librarians are reading books that have been made into movies this week and will be posting reviews for your reading pleasure. Some of us are reading books for which the library owns both the book and the video! So, you might want to check out both the book and the video. All of the books that the librarians review will be available for you to check out at the entrance of the library.

On your mark, get set, READ!

It's PoP time again!

Hello fellow readers,

It’s heating up outside which can only mean that it’s time to start our summer reading extravaganza – PoP3 (Pages of Power).  This is the third summer the library has sponsored an on campus reading initiative for faculty and staff (including student workers).  Every summer for the last couple of years we have encouraged the campus to read books from the library or books available on Link + and to post what they have read along with a brief description on a library hosted web site.  The librarians are reading too and will be providing riveting (well, at least pretty interesting) reviews of books on a variety of topics such as history, biography, movie books and natural history.

Make your plans now to join your colleagues in reading this summer and sharing your thoughts about what you’ve read with us!  There are prizes for readers who tell us about reading one book, five books or ten books and a grand prize awaits the reader reporting the most books read for the summer.  So, you might ask, when does this extravaganza begin?  It all starts on June 16, right after graduation and it goes right through the summer until August 25, 2008.

Keep watch for more information on how you can participate.  Get that reading list ready!
