5 Spring Book Ideas

It’s spring and finals are wrapping up so take a break and read a book. If you only have a few minutes try Tree Tour : Brigham Young University (QK 189 .B745 2007). This great little volume can tell you about your favorite campus trees. Find it in the Science section on level 2 of the library. (You may enjoy it so much you’ll want your own copy. They are available through the bookstore.)

Most students live in apartments so gardening is tricky, but not impossible. Try Square Foot Gardening by Bartholomew, Mel (SB 321 .B28). You might surprise yourself with how much you can grow in a small space.

The sun is out so you should be out. If you have kids you’ll like Best Hikes with Children-Utah by Keilty, Maureen (GV 199.42 .U8 K43 2000). The hills are waiting, take plenty of water and pack some granola bars. When the kids get tired you can stop and read a book. Henry Hikes to Fitchburg by Johnson, D. B. might inspire them.

If you are a little more adventurous then we have Utah trails: Moab region by Massey, Peter (GV 1024 .M3754 2006). Keep the shiny side up if you drive out there. Be sure to tell someone where you are going and when you’ll be back!

If you don’t have a car you can still get away through reading. Enjoy stories from golden days of Provo in the book Hooligan: A Mormon Boyhood by Thayer, Douglas H. (BX 8670.1 .T335a 2007 or in T335ho Sampler Collection.)

The library has millions of other books that can be enjoyed while sitting on green lawn under the warm sun. Take a moment to enjoy them now.
