Summer Reading

photo of an open book on the beachLooking for an engaging read for over the summer break?  Check out one (or more) of the books in the list below, which includes romances, fantasy fiction, thrillers, historical novels, and contemporary fiction.   All are available on a display table in the 3rd floor reference area
hallway.  If you’ll be heading off campus and taking library books with you, remember that books can be renewed up to 10 times (wow!)  online at the library’s website or by calling Circulation at 217-581-6071. Don’t see anything here? Check out electronic and  audiobooks on MyMediaMall or look for a good read on the reader’s advisory tool NovelList Plus . Finally, did you know you can search the library catalog by genre? Type your genre inside quotes and click “Go” or “find.” logo image On the right hand column you’ll scroll down to the Genre heading where you can then limit further.

Need to know more? Here is a bit of library nerdy-ness about Library of Congress Genre/Form terms, and below you can click to retrieve lists of books matching the genre label.read-341027_960_720
