New books added to the Gardner-Harvey Library in December!

See our new materials list of items we added to the collection in December! We added 152 books, e-books, DVDs, and other items during that time, thanks to your selections and suggestions. The list is sorted by call number, with items grouped roughly by subject area.

Here are eight titles from the list, to give you an idea of what we've been buying:
  • The 100-year life : living and working in an age of longevity / Lynda Gratton and Andrew Scott
  • Fannie never flinched : one woman's courage in the struggle for American labor union rights / Mary Cronk Farrell
  • We were one : shoulder to shoulder with the Marines who took Fallujah / Patrick K. O'Donnell
  • Thank you for being late : an optimist's guide to thriving in the age of accelerations / Thomas L. Friedman
  • Good neighbors : the democracy of everyday life in America / Nancy L. Rosenblum
  • Chickenizing farms and food : how industrial meat production endangers workers, animals, and consumers / Ellen K. Silbergeld
  • Born a crime : stories from a South African childhood / Trevor Noah
  • Stone coffin : a mystery / Kjell Eriksson
This tag will show you all of the prior lists of new materials, in reverse chronological order. We are eager to hear from you about individual items you would like us to buy, or types of items we should be on the lookout for, or general subject areas we should build up in the collection. Your input will help us keep the collection working well as we add items during the remainder of the 2016/17 academic year  We're looking forward to what you'll recommend next!

If you have a suggestion of something to order, please use our "Tell GHL to Buy It" form, email Amy Carmichael (, or drop by the library with your request. And pass your general suggestions or comments about the collection to us in those same ways.

Thanks again for keeping our collection vibrant and your information needs met!
