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!

The WGC will have board and card games on hand and have been running a couple room of role-playing games for Dungeons and Dragons.

De-stress in the Library

The end of the semester is fast approaching, where has the time gone?!—papers and projects are due, oh no here come finals, and the pressure is on. Come stop by the second floor of Meriam Library where we can help you relax and recharge.  A table will be stocked with a variety of fun activities including puzzles, stickers, and crayons and coloring pages.

Besides fun diversions, we will also provide note taking provisions, and snacks, while supplies last.
