MU Reads 150+
The year-long reading initiative encourages MU students, faculty and staff to read for pleasure and for knowledge during 2015. The books can be in any format (printed book, e-book, downloadable text, audio book, etc.) and from any source. Books can be on any topic, fiction or non-fiction.
Marshall University Libraries encourages faculty, staff, and students to read individually or by creating a team. Teams can have any number of members; choose a name, select a leader to keep track of the books read by team members, and register at the library. All participants will be eligible for a chance to win prizes! If you are interested in forming a team, please fill out the registration form in this guide or ask at the Circulation Desk. For more information call 304-696-2334.
At the end of each semester, names will be drawn from all participants and prizes will be awarded.
The program is inspired by a similar program conducted by the West Virginia Center for the Book, an affiliate of the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress, which promotes the importance of books and reading. The West Virginia Center for the Book brings this message to audiences statewide. The Center highlights the state’s unique literary heritage, from its earliest storytellers to modern novelists and poets.
The West Virginia Center for the Book is a project of the West Virginia Library Commission. More information is available at www.librarycommission.wv.gov.
