Get Comfortable, Relax, and READ!

We are now in our summer hours. What better time to grab a book, find a comfortable spot, and read?! You can search the catalog to find materials. Maybe you want to reread a classic or listen to the audio book version.

Are you interested in seeing what new materials we have? New books arrive monthly and you can find them in several locations. New Books are displayed on the lower level at the information desk and on the shelves located next to the Sara Tyler Memorial Area in front of the Archives offices; these materials are from the Curriculum Collection (juvenile or young adult). 


You can also find new books  at the Reference desk in the Learning Commons (main level) and in the front lounge of the library. These materials are a mixture of subjects and genres. If you can't find what you're looking for, remember to browse the General Stacks on the upper level. 

While you're checking out the new books in the lounge, take a seat and relax for a while. This little nook would make a great place to read your desired book. You could bring a snack and a drink and make a day out of it. There are several other places you could "curl up" and read a book or listen to an audio tape. We have new comfortable furniture on the lower level and some nice little spaces on the upper level of the library, as well.

Now don't forget that we also offer OverDrive! You can access OverDrive through the library's Databases: A-Z or by getting the app (available on iOS, Android, and Windows). You will need to use your NTNET login and password to gain access.  You'll be able to find eBooks and audio books of all subjects and genres.

If you have questions or need assistance, call the Reference desk at (254)968-9249 or email reference@tarleton.edu.
