Culture of Reading

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


Faculty and Staff: Interesting in being a Reading Circle facilitator?

The interest form for 2017-2018 reading circles is now available.  (Instructors must hold a master's degree or higher, and be currently employed full-time by Methodist University.  Adjunct instructors with an ongoing employment relationship with MU are also welcome to apply.)

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.

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.
