“Love is in the air….”*Check out the “Love and romance” display, celebrating the month of February.  Are you running solo this Valentine’s day? Do you have a significant other but don’t feel like going out? With rainy days ahead, you might choose to just stay inside and live vicariously through books or movies. Come see the display on the 4th floor of Meriam Library where there are books and popular DVDs on love and romance-including loving your pets, your family, one’s self and. of course, romantic love! All of the items are available to check out on the 1st floor of the library.

Our Favorite Reads of 2018

Everyone loves an end of year list, and your Meriam Library staff and faculty are no different!  So here for you curious readers is our list of favorite titles of those we read in the past year.  Our favorites span fiction in multiple genres, history, food/earth science, and business, and we hope you'll find something to enjoy here.  Where the library already owns a copy, those have been linked to OneSearch -- but we'll soon have all of these titles available for checkout.  Grab your own new favorite to enjoy a little break from screentime over the holiday break!
