Since 1976, February has been known as Black History month to celebrate the accomplishments of African-Americans in U. S. history. This year’s book display focuses on books by or about African-Americans that have been published since 2016. Some titles will be easily recognizable like The Hate U Give and Hidden Figures. But some will be new to you!
Welcome back students, staff, and faculty! Students have you received your new ID card and parking decal for the new Semester?
People may recognize The Book Thief before they know what TxWes Reads is. But this year they are the same!
The West library sponsors a campus-wide read every year called TxWes Reads. It's like a year-long book club. You are encouraged to read the book then come to one or all of the programs designed around discussing the book's ideas and themes. This year’s book is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
To students both new and returning, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) can be a huge question mark. What is it? How can ILL assist me in my academic career? What does ILL look like at Wesleyan? Who can I contact to learn more?

Every year about this time, displays appear about “New Beginnings” to go along with the start of the school year. Isn’t each year really starting over? I happened on to a reading list about “Starting over” and I thought that would be more appropriate for this month’s book display.
