Top picks for good reads from the library inventory project
Over the summer, Monroe Library staffers and librarians took advantage of the hiatus in the semester calendar to make headway on our ongoing inventory project. One of the main goals of this process is to ensure that every book shelved in the stacks has a complete record entered into the library catalog as well as a matching barcode for checkout. It also gives our staff a chance to get up close and personal with the main library collection, which has new books being added to it every day! Here are some titles of interest from the education section:
