IRC Collections Development and Reference Librarian Connie James-Jenkin put a suggestion box on the reference desk for two weeks in November that asked students to submit the title of their favorite book. Some students suggested more than one book, and Connie got recommendations of approximately 50 books.
No restrictions were placed on the type of book that could be submitted as a favorite read, and the most recommended books were “To Kill a Mockingbird” and the “Hunger Games” books. “The students were free to recommend a fun read or something they found meaningful to them,” said Connie.
