Make Wishbone Proud...

Still not ready to devote all your time to homework? Then make Wishbone proud and curl up with a good book! Check out Lewis Library’s McNaughton Collection, located on the main level beside the 24-hour center. (These are the books with the light green labels). The McNaughton Collection consists of fiction and nonfiction books that are temporarily leased to the library. Unlike our permanent collection, these are often bestsellers rather than academic. We have a variety of books including mysteries, romance, cookbooks, and biographies of popular figures.

We got several new McNaughton books in recently! Some new titles include:

I’ll Walk Alone by Mary Higgins Clark
Call number: PS 3553 .L287 I5 2011

Haiti: After the Earthquake by Paul Farmer
Call number: RA 645.7 .H2 F37 2011

Barefoot Contessa How Easy is That?: Fabulous Recipes & Easy Tips by Ina Garten
Call number: TX 714 .G36445 2010

Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him
