New Books for a New Summer

Before you head out this Memorial Day weekend, stop by the library (but remember our hours) to check out a new book or two. This is the perfect weekend to relax with a book at the beach. So here are a few to get you started:

We have a huge selection of religion books from which to choose, including: Freeing the Body, Freeing the Mind: Writings on the Connections Between Yoga and Buddhism by Michael Stone
Jesus Made in America: A Cultural History from the Puritans to The Passion of the Christ by Stephen J. Nichols
The Story of Christianity by Justo L. Gonzalez

And for you sports fans and media enthusiasts, try Those Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN by James A. Miller or America's Game: The Epic Story of How Pro Football Captured a Nation by Michael MacCambridge.

If you are following the election this fall, try Party Politics in America by Marjorie Randon Hershey for a good introduction. And may we also suggest Campaign Rules: A 50-State Guide to Campaigns and Elections in America by Nina Kasniunas.

Do we have any music lovers? Then try:
The Music of Black Americans: A History by Eileen Southern
The Life and Times of Scott Joplin by John Bankston
The Life and Times of Franz Liszt by Jim Whiting
Still on the Road: The Songs of Bob Dylan, 1974-2006 by Clinton Heylin

As always, we have many more books available through our catalog or new books list. So stock up! A good book never goes bad.

Student logins required for computer use

Effective May 21, the library computers will require you to log in with your MyPVCC username and password (which all current PVCC students have).  Student laptops that don’t require login will continue to be available in the library along with two walk-up stations for catalog access, printing and account management (looking up your username and changing your password).

Computers that don’t require login are also available in PVCC’s Open Computer Lab, Rm. M832, in the Technology Wing of the Main Building.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
