What is the best book you read for school?

Stevens Students share their favorite books assigned for school via the Library’s ‘QUESTION OF THE WEEK’
by Courtney Walsh, Research & Instructional Services Librarian

Anyone who has visited the Library this year has likely noticed a prominent white board labeled “Question of the Week” stationed in the Great Hall.

Inspired by a conference presentation on novel approaches to academic library outreach, every Monday morning your Librarians have been posting a Question of the Week for students to ponder and answer during the course of the week.

It’s been great fun to see Stevens students' opinions and responses on a wide variety of questions, such as:

  • What did you do this summer?
  • What is your dream job?
  • Where is your favorite place to study?
  • What do you like to do when it snows?
  • What is your favorite movie?
  • #collegein5words

Last week (week 13 of the spring semester), our Question of the Week was: What is the best book you read for school (any year)?

The responses for week 13 were uploaded to a Pinterest page, complete with links to the Stevens Library catalog and a note indicating the availability of the title (in print, ebook, or via interlibrary loan).

Check out the incredible books that our students have recommended. How many have you read?
