New Reader Collection

strict warning: Declaration of views_plugin_style_default::options() should be compatible with views_object::options() in /home4/thomasd8/public_html/sites/all/modules/contrib/views/plugins/views_plugin_style_default.inc on line 24.

New Reader collectionThis special browsing collection for beginning adult readers is located on the top floor of the Main Library (next to the study room), and is available for public use. It is arranged differently than other library collections. Call numbers begin with NR and range from 2 to 54. The numbers represent a topic or section of the collection. Shelves are labeled.

Most books are not marked with a reading level; however, newer purchases indicate the level in the upper right hand corner of the first inside page. Most readers can open a book and judge a reading level from the amount of white space on a page, length of the words and sentences, and vocabulary level.

You may check books out on a student's library card, and may keep them for 3 months.

If you plan on having books sent to you via interlibrary loan, write down the book number and title for future use because the browsing nature of cataloging makes locating the books in the library computer difficult. This information will help you locate the book in the computer.
