The Most Talked-About Book This Summer: The Plot Against America by Philip Roth

Standard

content The Plot Against America is one of the most talked-about books this summer, and keeps appearing on everyone’s recommended ‘summer reading’ list. It was actually released in 2004, yet reads as though it  was written this year. The Plot Against America was Philip Roth’s entry into the genre of historical fiction, and it asks “what if ‘Lucky Lindy’ unseated the popular FDR in the 1940 election?” This page-turner was composed as if it were an autobiography, written by the adult Philip Roth about the child Philip Roth and his family, who each (father, mother, brother, cousin, and aunt) play an important character, presented in loving detail throughout his novel. This book is highly recommended !

Standard

If you have a child  in grades  7 – 12,  chances are they  are required to read a number of books this summer, whether in private or public schools.  Most public libraries have long waiting lists for the titles, but we have copies of most of these books here on our shelves – from the traditional classics to contemporary classics – waiting to be read this summer.  So don’t have your child be ‘wait-listed’ for books today  – stop by the library and let us help you here!  (Please note, if we don’t have a particular title, we can always request it for you via our ILL program, which allows us to borrow from other colleges.)

Reminder–Returning Textbooks

Standard

As the semester winds down, please be mindful that the Library CAN NOT take any rental books back which were rented from the Bookstore! Those books need to be brought back to the Bookstore, to clear your account so you won’t be charged replacement fees. The Library isn’t responsible for your Bookstore rentals which are left with us.

We don’t want to leave you hanging! Remember to return where you got them. Thanks!
