Faculty Favorites for National Library Week

Last week marked the 60th anniversary of National Library week; a national observance designed to promote library use and support, celebrated by libraries across the country every April. This year Copley Library participated with a “Faculty Favorites” display. Thirteen USD faculty members from across campus told us a little bit about their favorite book. It was wonderful to read all the different responses – from literary classics to inspirational texts, adventure stories, and more. Click the images below to read each participant’s quote and get inspired for your next read!

We also encouraged visitors to tell us their favorites throughout the week in person and via social media. We received over 25 responses from USD students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Highlights from the visitor contributions include Music: An Appreciation, My Own Country, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and The Power of Nonviolent Action. We will feature details of all the “What’s your favorite?” contributions in an upcoming library display.

Below is a complete list of the Faculty participants and their selections. Click the links to locate and borrow the items from Copley Library or Circuit.

Thank you again to all our participating faculty and library visitors! We look forward to bringing you more Faculty Favorites next April.
