What’s New in Featured Fiction

With summer upon us, it’s a perfect time to escape into a good book. But with so many books to choose from, where does a hopeful reader start?

Fortunately, you don’t need to look any further than our Featured Fiction collection, which is stocked with award-winning titles in multiple fiction genres. Located within the first floor New Books Alcove, our Featured Fiction books are thoughtfully selected and regularly updated in order to provide you with quality reading choices. Best of all, these hot summer reads are conveniently displayed where you can browse easily without having to roam through the stacks or search for titles in the catalog.

Liked It? Rec It!

Ever love a book so much that you can’t wait to tell everyone about it? If you enjoyed reading one of our Featured Fiction books, we’d love to hear about it. Comment cards are available next to the book display, giving you the opportunity to share a few thoughts about what you liked about the book and why you recommend it to other readers.

The library has a new costume display, on loan from the Oregon Center for the Arts at Southern Oregon University theatre program.

Designed by Brandon McCowan

These two costumes are from the 2018 production of The Rover by Aphra Behn, directed by Dawn Monique Williams. Both costumes were designed by Brandon McCowan and were worn by Angela Hernandez as Angelica and Ian Fyfield as Don Pedro.

The display can be viewed on the second floor, Periodicals Department, through the summer.
