If you are looking for a great way to meet people from other departments on campus, or if you are looking for a social outlet, The Bellevue University Library is offering a new and exciting opportunity for faculty, staff and students to meet and discuss books they have recently read. We only have one rule and that is that the books to be read and discussed need to be from the Bellevue University Library’s collection.
The Book Lover’s Group started in August 2019. Led by Reference Services Librarian, Lorraine Patrick, the first book discussion focused on books staff, faculty, and students read over the summer. The second Book Lover’s Group was on Wednesday October 2, 2019 and it focused on scary books. In case you missed either book discussion, there will future book discussions during this fiscal year. Future book lover discussions will focus on books written within a specific genre (i.e. mysteries) or could be books by a favorite author. Please note, the books (or audiobooks) need to be from the Bellevue University Library’s collection. To view the Library’s catalog, please click here and search for items by author, title, subject, or ISBN#. Each book will have a unique call number assigned to it that is a number letter combination. All items can be located in the Library based on the call number. If you have difficulties finding items in the Library, the Library Staff are always happy to assist you. All items can be borrowed for three (3) weeks and can be renewed twice, as long as another patron has not requested the item.
Please check The Buzz, the calendar on our web page, or the digital sign in the Bellevue University Library announcing the next Book Lover’s Group. We look forward to getting to know you and thank you for supporting the Bellevue University Library!
