Fall 2016 Leddy Library Reading Challenge!

The Fall 2016 Leddy Library Reading Challenge is a social group for ALL members of the University of Windsor community. Meetings will start on Tuesday September 13th and run every Tuesday until the beginning of December!

The main objective of this group is to create a larger sense of community on campus while allowing for students, faculty, and library staff to share a social-academic space for critical thinking and literature review.

Still not certain this group is for you - well how about some incentive to start reading?

THERE WILL BE PRIZES, EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES!

  • Each month will have a specific theme - meetings taking place during the month will related to the overall theme 
  • There will be one or two books directly related to the events, activities and theme of each month
  • Points will be given for reading, and participation at meetings BUT YOU DO NOT NEED TO READ TO TAKE PART!

For Updates Please follow Leddy Library - University of Windsor on Facebook! And Join our Event Page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1790466534542059/
