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

We are adding many new items to the collection each month, and making sure that you can see them on display! Watch for our upcoming scary movie DVD display, as well as our ongoing New Books shelves (as shown above). See our new materials list of items we added to the collection in October! We added 165 books, e-books, DVDs, and other items during that time, thanks to your selections and suggestions. The list can be sorted by call number, area of our collection, or by title.

Here are eight titles from the list, to give you an idea of what we've been buying:
  • Godless citizens in a godly republic : atheists in American public life / R. Laurence Moore and Isaac Kramnick
  • Empress : the astonishing reign of Nur Jahan / Ruby Lal
  • American like me : reflections on life between cultures / edited by America Ferrera with E. Cayce Dumont
  • Northland : a 4,000-mile journey along America's forgotten border / Porter Fox
  • Good and mad : the revolutionary power of women's anger / Rebecca Traister
  • Skin folk : stories / Nalo Hopkinson
  • The fourth age : smart robots, conscious computers, and the future of humanity / Byron Reese
  • The poison squad : one chemist's single-minded crusade for food safety at the turn of the twentieth century / Deborah Blum
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.

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!
