Culture of Reading

Get Between the Covers!
Improving student reading skills by developing a culture of reading


Looking for a good book to read for fun?


Most of our popular fiction can be found in the call numbers 813.54, 813.6, 823.914, and 823.912. They have red fiction stickers to help them stand out from those oh-so-important but sometimes less-than-exciting classics of literature.

Comics!!! I mean, Graphic Novels!!!


Our graphic novels and comics still have their own space - on the movable shelving unit facing the Bell Tower. Check 'em out for great illustrations combined with compelling stories.

About the Culture of Reading program


"Get Between the Covers! Improving Student Reading Skills by Developing a Culture of Reading" is the theme of Methodist University's first-ever Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP).  The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges requires every member institution to develop and implement a QEP.  Methodist University is developing the next QEP, but the successful portions of the Culture of Reading program - reading circles, popular fiction and non-fiction in the library, book exchange racks, contests, and programs - will continue.
