A partnership between the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library (TLCPL) and Lourdes University is bringing a leisure reading collection to the school’s Duns Scotus Library. The collection, which consists of popular fiction and non-fiction books from authors such as Janet Evanovich, Phil Jackson, Stephen King, James Patterson, and Nora Roberts, is open to TLCPL library card holders and Lourdes University faculty, staff, and students.

“We are very excited to bring a leisure reading collection to the university,” said Marilyn Zielinski, Manager of the Technical Services Department at the Library. “We know students spend a lot of time reading textbooks but may not always have quick access to books that ignite their interests.”

Although the books are already available for check-out, an official “grand opening” and book preview is scheduled for Tuesday, November 19 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. in the Duns Scotus Library at Lourdes. TLCPL staff will be on hand to register students for library cards and show students how to access the Library’s FREE eMedia products including Freegal, hoopla, Overdrive, and Zinio, which allow Library customers to download books, music, magazines and more!

Papa G’s Pizza ‘n Grill will provide light food and refreshments. To vote for future Lourdes' Leisure Books for U reads click here (limited time only). Don't forget to visit our Pinterest board to preview each title before voting!
