JUST ARRIVED! Summer’s most anticipated new books and Best Sellers are all waiting for you at Krupp Library. “Into the Water” by Paula Hawkins, “Against all Odds” by Danielle Steel, and Lisa See’s “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” deserve a place in your Summer beach bag. Inspiring books such as Sheryl Sandberg’s “Option B…”, William McRaven’s “Make Your Bed”, and Ivanka Trump’s “Women Who Work” have become instant best-sellers on the non-fiction lists. So whether you’re headed to the boat, the beach or the backyard, stop by the library and pick up some good books to enjoy!
Great news for every parent this summer! We are pleased to announce that we have – or can probably have for you in a timely manner – the books on your child’s ‘summer reading list’ which has become mandatory for most schools (Grades 6 – 12). Rather than wait on an endless list for an available copy at your public library, or buy the book out-of-pocket, just order the book here by requesting it from our collection – or ordering it through ILL. Don’t forget, we have access to titles from libraries around the country – so try us this summer, and pick up all the books your child needs.
“ConGraduations!” to the Class of 2017! We wish you all the best, and send you forth with these inspiring words from author/humorist Tom Bodett:
“In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.”
All your hard work has finally paid off, and you’re almost officially Bryant alumni now! Make sure you drop in and see the library one more time before you leave campus.
We’ve got some photos from past commencement ceremonies in our Digital Commons you can look to get ready for the ceremony—check out these pictures from 1945 and 1968:

Everyone at the library wishes you good luck in your future endeavors, and we hope you come back to visit us!
Happy almost summer!
The library wants to make your life a little bit easier, so we’ve got a few things going on this week. We’ll opening earlier and staying open later for finals, and you can check here for a complete list of our hours. The snack cart will be making some afternoon appearances this week, so keep an eye out for it! We also have coloring pages out if you need to take a break from studying and just color for awhile.
Let us know if you need any research help (or moral support). Have a great vacation, Bryant!
