Come on over to the main library before (or during) break and borrow a book--in a format of your choosing! All you need is your Bowdoin ID card. Thatâ€™s it. All of these are located just inside the front doors of the Library--ask one of the nice folks at the circulation desk to point you in the right direction.
We've got an awful lot of audio books, including the Steve Jobs biography that youâ€™ve been meaning to read, The Wind through the Keyhole by Stephen King, The Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling, Bird Cloud by Annie Proulx and Atlantic : Great Sea Battles, Heroic Discoveries, Titanic Storms, and a Vast Ocean of a Million Stories by the indefatigable Simon Winchester.
Weâ€™ve got a cheerful (and sometimes tearful) group of Childrenâ€™s Books including I Want My Hat Back, Alphabeasties, A Sick Day for Amos McGee, and my one of my favorites: The Book of Sleep
Not to mention a coterie of Kindles, with lots of great books
And we always have a bunch of new books reviewed in the New York Times and elsewhere. Some books in our new books area right now are: Sherman Alexieâ€™s Blasphemy, Toni Morrisonâ€™s Home (also on audio), Jonathan Kozolâ€™s Fire in the Ashes, and John Irvingâ€™s In One Person.
