Want to talk about a book you loved?

The O. Henry Library now has a Book Talk page in the O. Henry Community Course. If you click on MODULES and find the O. Henry Library, there is a book talk discussion page for students to share about the books they're reading. Be on the lookout for book talks being shared in this weekly newsletter as well.

Questions or Comments?

Feel free to email me with any comments/questions/concerns you have regarding all things library. I'm here to help and will be checking email frequently.
