“We wanted to capture snapshots of what this time looks like – what researchers 50-100 years from now would want to know about what it was like to live through this period.” ~Bethany Anderson, archivist for natural and applied sciences

Leaving campus but have books to return? The bookdrop located on the south side of the Main Library building off of the E3 parking lot is still open. You'll have to wait a few days while returned books remain in "quarantine" to see the changes reflected on your account.

A collection of short stories may be a good direction to go! They are great for getting back into the rhythm of reading since you can commit to only one short story at a time. Vampires in the Lemon Grove by Karen Russel is a fun one that comes to mind.
