A Little Light Reading... Fun Books @ the Library

Our library has much more than technical (and perhaps dry) reading and viewing materials. Here's a sampling of books and videos about fascinating history and scientist biographies that we offer, perfect for holiday traveling or waiting for the snow to melt.

If you'd like to place a hold on a book for office delivery (or you can visit the library and read in a comfy chair), just contact us and we'll be happy to assist.

Books and videos are located in the Main Library unless otherwise noted. Search the catalog for more books.
