SFU librarians and library staff have been creating in-house “summer picks” lists for several years and want to share the fun. This year the Library is extending an invitation to the entire SFU community to submit summer reading suggestions.
A number of other universities have summer reading programs but they are often targeted programs such as assigned readings for incoming students, or recommended readings from faculty for alumni. “We wanted this to be lighthearted and really inclusive,” says Elaine Fairey, Director of the Student Learning Commons. “We know people are reading academic materials, but this is about celebrating reading for pure enjoyment.”
