Read, Read Rudolph is happening NOW and going through December 20.
How it works – we’ve selected books from Main, Science, and the Curriculum Materials Library, wrapped them in festive paper, and put a “gift tag” on each, offering some clues as to its content. It’s a mix of fiction and non-fiction from a wide range of subject areas and genres, including juvenile literature and graphic novels. You pick up one that looks interesting, check it out, and, after unwrapping it, have a book for your holiday downtime.
Displays are up at Main, Science, and the CML (this picture is from Main; pictures of the other displays up soon).
AND – for ONE DAY ONLY – at the MLC, we’ll have a temporary display for two hours this afternoon (Thursday, December 7.)
Our library elves had a lot of fun choosing the books; hope you have as much enjoyment selecting and reading them.
The Zell B. Miller Learning Center will be open 24 hours for your studying needs until December 11 at 10 p.m. Feel free to stop by, night owls and early birds!

Their Eyes Were Watching God
by Zora Neale Hurston
One of the most important works of twentieth-century American literature, Zora Neale Hurston’s beloved 1937 classic, Their Eyes Were Watching God, is an enduring Southern love story sparkling with wit, beauty, and heartfelt wisdom. Told in the captivating voice of a woman who refuses to live in sorrow, bitterness, fear, or foolish romantic dreams, it is the story of fair-skinned, fiercely independent Janie Crawford, and her evolving selfhood through three marriages and a life marked by poverty, trials, and purpose. A true literary wonder, Hurston’s masterwork remains as relevant and affecting today as when it was first published—perhaps the most widely read and highly regarded novel in the entire canon of African American literature.
The Bulldog Book Club meets at Jittery Joe’s in the Miller Learning Center. Everyone is welcome. Anyone can suggest and vote on the books. Book club meetings are Blue Card and FYOS events.
Here are the Miller Learning Center’s hours for fall break:
Friday, November 1: 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Saturday, November 2: CLOSED
Sunday, November 3: 1 p.m. – 2 a.m.
