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 are every Tuesday from 3-4 p.m. 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!
