New Books in High Use and Interest Areas Now Available

With the support of an allocation of $20,000 in ARRA (American Recovery and Investment Act) funds received in spring 2010, the Library has acquired almost 600 recently published books in areas of high use and on current topics of interest.  Most of these titles have been added to the circulating  Stacks collection.  The selections include recent award winners in fiction, poetry, and non-fiction.  These titles focus on such subjects as digital technologies, diversity, global warming, Islam, multiculturalism, sustainability, and women's and gender studies.  A number of books also have been acquired for the Youth Collection.  To identify titles of potential interest, you may want to conduct keyword or subject searches against the online catalog, or browse the New Titles list on the Library web site at
