What is SBCC Reads? It’s an awesome community reading program!

The Luria Library offers free books to students and hosts events and activities to explore the issues raised as we read books together. Our goals:

    Explore interdisciplinary issues sparked by the selected book through conversations, readings, displays, and other activities. Free copies of the book will distributed to interested students; faculty members are encouraged to use the book in class curricula.
    Generate informed discussion of key issues by promoting the reading and discussion of books on the broad themes in the book.
    Focus on academic disciplines at SBCC which provide us with a broader understanding of the issues raised in the book.
    Create further campus appreciation of the library and the role it plays in education and research.
