Mascot readingPartner Reading Recommendations

This years event broadly celebrates the theme of reading and importance of it in our personal, intellectual, and professional lives. To support the theme and encourage diverse interpretation of reading, partners have provided a reading recommendation.

Below are links to the library’s catalogue record so you can find the books in our collection.

And remember, you don’t have to be a Bobcat to borrow from MSU Library; Montana residents are eligible for a community borrower card.
