What is a Library Common Read?

The Library Common Read provides a shared experience for you by bringing the campus community together to attend a variety of events and talk about racial literacy. (It's not just talking about a book).

Your benefits

Intellectual engagement

  • The common read can help your academic transition to college: reading helps develop your focus.
  • Your professor sees this as a way to help you across all your classes: even math classes want you to read.

Community engagement

  • You are now part of a campus-wide dialogue: you'll talk with fellow students, staff, and faculty!
  • You'll see civility in action by hearing and exploring different views and experiences: Caring is Sharing.
